from a Viking name to Moodie/Moody/Mudie?

Classification: Query
My father's recent DNA results have shown that we descend anciently from Norway. Our last name however is Moody.
(perhaps from some form of MODI?)
At any rate the closest I can come to finding a reasonable explanation for this is that the MOODIE's of the Orkney Isles also claim to be descended from the early Norse Jarls of Orkney, Caithness, Shetland etc.
I am just wondering if by any chance anyone knows more about his Moodie family and their Norse origins.
Thank You
