Some variations on the name of Wishart are as follows:

UK, Rep. Ireland, Commonwealth, USA:  Wishart, Wisheart, Wishert, Wishard, Wiseheart, Wisehart, Wiscard, Wissard, Wysard, Wysart, Wyscard, Wyschard, Wischeard, Wischert, Whichard, Wycharde, Wyscharde, Whisker, Wichard, Vicharde, Vizard

We believe the name is descended from Tancred de Hauteville La Guiscard of St. Lo (near Coutances in Normandy, France).  See Wishart History for some more information.  If Guiscard is written in script, it can easily be mistaken for Wiscard.
