    Muir’s of all spelling variants are acknowledged to have defended from the Pictish race of Celts, and commonly in both Ireland and Scotland. Many of those spellings can be traced to different locations around the world. These include:

    Muir/More/Moore/Mure – Ayshire and areas southwest Scotland
    Moar – Orkney and Shetland
    Moir – Aherdeenshire and southwest
    Mohr – Central lowlands
    Mor – Central lowlands
    O’More – Ireland
    O’Morhda – Ireland
    O’Moore – Ireland

    The most ancient version of the name is O’Mordha from the word ‘Mordha’, Gaelic for noble, or stately, and the Irish ‘O’More / O’Mordha’ is the current version of this.
