      I don't have time to go find my references to give you a detailed
      answer, but the long and short of it is that MacCracken and MacNaughton
      basically represent Anglicized forms of the same Gaelic names -- hence
      the reason MacCracken is always listed as a "sept" of MacNaughton in
      those clan reference books.

      When I get some more time on my hands I'll show you what the Gaelic
      roots are and how both names come from that.
