'George of the Noble' or 'from the hill' or 'of the ambitious'.

'Ard' can mean a few things (high, hill, noble, etc.) but in the the
context of a moniker (never heard of 'Shores', though - Scots-Gaelic?)
these would make the most since. Was it spelt like 'na h-ard'?

Let us happily assume it means 'noble' since M222 folks are 'all descended
from kings' ;-)
