Cormack is a masculine name meaning "impure son" or "chariot driver," related to the Irish and Gaelic names Cormac and Cormick. It is an old Gaelic surname common in Ireland and originates from the Gaelic corb-mac, meaning "chariot lad." Some Harry Potter fans may recognize the name from the wizard of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Cormac McLaggen. While Cormac comes across as somewhat arrogant, he proves himself brave and righteous in the end, which are great qualities for baby. Cormac was also prevalent in Irish mythology with Cormac mac Airt, a medieval Irish legend and High King of Ireland. He was known for being true, wise, and generous. With a name like Cormack, your little one is sure to be just as kind and wise as the previous High King.
