Scottish Clans and Family Names in Scotland

Scottish Clans & Family Names In Scotland

With Scottish Clans and family names in Scotland being a huge part of your Scottish History, we thought it might be helpful to list as many Scottish Clan sites or family name sites that we could find.

You may wonder why so many of our Scots names start with Mac! Mac is the Gaelic word for son in both Scotland and Ireland whereas only Ireland uses O' which has the same meaning.

Whether your surname starts with Mac or Mc this is not relevant as historically the same family would use either variation of the spelling depending on where they were or what they were doing, Mc is merely an abbreviation of Mac as is M'.

For example, say your ancestors name was Donald MacDonald, this would translate to Donald son of Donald just as names such as Robertson translate to "son of Robert".

If you have a Scottish Clan which we have missed feel free to get in touch so that we can add your clan.
