To remember "mac" think of MacDonald meaning son of Donald or MacAdam meaning son of Adam.

could luath also be used to mean clever?

I wondered about that too, but I don't think so, because it's not one of the meanings given at either Am Faclair Beag or at Wiktionary. It just seems to mean fast, quick, swift, or early, soon. https://www.faclair.com https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/luath
