Farquhar - from the Gaelic 'fear' and 'char' meaning 'dear one'. In
modern Scottish Gaelic, the surname is written "MacFhearchair".
The clan derives its name from Farquhar Shaw, 4th son of Alexander "Ciar" Mackintosh of Rothiemurchus, 5th Chief of the Clan Shaw, who settled in the Braes of Mar, the source of the River-Dee. His descendants took the name Farquharson.
