Gender: M Meaning of Cormac: "charioteer" Origin of Cormac: Irish

Both offbeat and upbeat, this evocative traditional Irish name that runs through Celtic mythology is known here via award-winning novelist Cormac McCarthy (born Charles). The author's adopted name is related to Cormac Mac Airt, one of the great legendary high kings of Ireland.

In two of the Harry Potter movies, Cormac McLaggen is a Gryffindor student.

And for all you popularity-phobes, Cormac has never yet made it onto the American Top 1000 list.
