Tinclair, Tinckler—This name Mac An t-Sinclair is a transformation of the old Argyle sept name Mac Na Cearda. This name has no connection with Sinclair, and from it probably arose the Anglo-Scottish dialectic word "Tinkler," a craftsman. The sept Mac Na Cearda were known as Clann Na Cearda, or the Craftsmen. The name is variously written in old records as M'Necaird, M'Nokerd, and M'Nakard. See Caird.
