Scottish Names is a guide to names used in Scotland – Scots, Gaelic, international, ancient, modern, and timeless – and their origins and meanings.
These names are either popular today in modern Scotland, or are chosen because they have some special significance or historical link to Scotland. With Gaelic pronunciations, and historical and geographical references to the origin of first names and surnames, this book both helps parents choose a name for their baby, and also guides the reader to the history of Scotland’s most common surnames.
You could begin your search to find out whether you have Scots ancestry in this intriguing compilation.
