Scottish Girl Baby Names

This page concentrates on Scottish baby Boys names and their meanings. In Scotland, it is sometimes the case that they use family names as first names. In addition an abbreviation of Mc or mac (meaning son of) is sometimes used.

Scotland has a rich and unique history and this includes a number of ancient races such as the Scots, Celts and Gaels and this contriubutes to its names. In addition, in Scotland there is a tradition of we are all "Jock Tamson's bairns" meaning that we are all the same, no matter race, creed or colour and Scotland has often welcomed newcomers to its fold. After the second world war, a number of displaced european refugees settled and more recently the european union has provided a number of newcomers to the country bringing their own rich history. Some of the (native) Scottish names are derived from these ancient races and you can find more of these names on the Gaelic Girl names page.
