MCGETTRICK Family HistoryThis is a very unusual surname. Recorded as McKetterick, McGetrick, McGettrick, McKetrick, McKettrick, McKitterick and possibly others in the Republic, this has long been regarded as an Irish surname, but is equally Scottish and in both cases Norse! It derives from the Norse word 'sitric' meaning sword or knife, and in Ireland as McGettrick is particularly associated with County Sligo in the far west. This was a Norse kingdom during the first Millenium. As McKitterick and McGetrick the name is originally Scottish from Galloway, and in Ireland is particularly associated with Counties Armagh and Monaghan in the north.
