The Lochornie Burn is the uppermost reach of the River Ore, from its source in the Cleish Hills roughly to the junction with the Pieries Burn, after which it becomes the Kelty Burn as far as Loch Ore. It may be that this name contains the name Loch Ore with some kind of suffix, applied first to the burn, then secondarily to the settlement.
