The names McClary and MacAleary are derived from two distinct Gaelic septs. The first of these was the Mac Giolla Araith sept of County Cavan. The second was the Mac an Chleirigh sept of County Cavan. Both of these ancient Gaelic names have a number of anglicized variants including Clery, Cleary, Clark and Clarke.

A Sept is an ancient form of a Clan and is a group of people whose ancestors all bore the same surname and inhabited the same locality.
