Subject: Surname Origin "Cable"
Author: Jordan   (guest)

Hello, I would like to know if anyone knows the origin of my surname "Cable".
I have recently began to do research behind my last name for about a week now as I find this rather interesting.

Doing some research on my own, i've found a couple websites that explain that "Cable" could derive from the surname "McCable", which to me sounds Scottish. However, when research the name, many people who have the surname "McCable" are from Ireland.

Information on McCable is very hard to find and some say that the lastname could be a error and actually would be McCaleb or McCabel. I am stuck at this point and would like some help if anyone knows anything.

Thank you very much.

-Jordan
