MCCAW Family HistoryThis surname with spellings MacCaw, McCaw, McGaw, Megaw and Magaw, is a semi anglicized form of the Olde Scots Gaelic name M'Adhamh (pronounced M'Awyoe). The Gaelic prefix "mac" means "son of", plus the personal name Adhamh from the Hebrew meaning "Red Earth" and recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086. It first appears as a personal name in Scotland circa 1189 when Adam, Sub-prior of Melrose, became Abbot of Cuspar. Duncan Adam who flourished circa 1316 had four sons, and it is believed that all Scottish bearers of the name (with its numerous variants) descend from them.
