The names McQuaid, McQuade and Quade in Ireland are all derived from the native Gaelic Mac Uaid septs that were located in Counties Monaghan and Limerick. The Gaelic translation of this sept name is 'son of Watt' so there may be some sept members who anglicized their name to Watson.

A Sept is an ancient Clan-like collective describing a group of persons whose immediate ancestors bore a common surname and inhabited the same territory.
