- Kilgard - Named in 1910 by the Maclure brothers in conjunction with their brickworks.
- The first syllable represents the slurred pronunciation of 'kiln.' As for the second syllable, J.C. Maclure could only say, 'We don't know of another 'Kilgard' anywhere, and it has a good hard firebrick sound.' (See Clayburn.)
