Originally MacIntyres?

Transactions....Gaelic Society of Inverness:

The MacIntyres of Glennoe.

The name Macintyre, Mac-an-t-Saoir, means son of the carpenter. 

I have seen it stated that the Camerons of Glen-Nevis were originally Macintyres (the Highland Monthly, Vol. II., p. 191). What foundation there is for this statement I do not know. It is true that the Macintyres were not lairds. Still, as they claimed descent from Gillibride na h-Uamha, Somerled's father, it is not likely that any of them would change their name, even to please Lochiel.
