I was aware that MacEachern and MacEachen are two distinct names with different origins. I'm curious whether MacEacherns in Moidart were true MacEacherns or simply MacEachens who couldn't spell as one person told me. The MacEacherns are supposed to be from Islay and Kintyre and were armorers to Clan Donald. I read that ClanRanald had a smithy in Mingarry and perhaps he brought MacEacherns to Moidart to make his armor; probably no way to tell at this point other than DNA.
