Site Search Why "Mac" and "Mc" Surnames Often Contain a Second Capital Letter David asks: Why is the second “C” capitalized in names like “MacCleod”? The short story is that “Mc” and “Mac” are prefixes that mean “son of.” Early inconsistencies in records are what led to having both Mc and Mac prefixes. Mc is just an abbreviation of Mac, and both can actually be abbreviated further to the much less common M’. As you might guess from this, the myth that a Mac name denotes Scottish heritage while a Mc name denotes Irish heritage is simply not true. Similarly, the assertion that Mac names are Protestant while Mc names are Catholic doesn’t have a shred of truth to it.

Remembrance: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive Allison Gilbert, author of “Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive.” Bestselling author Jonathan Safran Foer convinced me a while ago that our relationship with food is important to understand because it represents so much more than sustenance. His grandmother’s chicken with carrots wasn’t delicious simply because she prepared it a certain way it was delicious because what the dish represented (continuity between generations). and what it prompted (conversation over the dinner table). “I came to learn that food serves two parallel purposes: it nourishes and it helps you remember,” Foer wrote in his groundbreaking book Eating Animals.

11 Little-Known Words for Specific Family Members The words we use for family members in English are specific about some things, and vague about others. Our vocabulary marks a distinction between our mother and her sisters (some languages use one word for mother and maternal aunts), but doesn't say whether siblings are older or younger (some languages have different words for brother and sister depending on their age relative to you). We lack words that pick out particular family members (we have "cousin," but what about child-of-my-father's-brother?) as well as certain general terms (we have "siblings" for brothers-and-sisters, but what about nieces-and-nephews?) If you look hard enough, you can find some words to help fill in the gaps.
