Product description

This 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 in modern Scotland, or are chosen because they have some special significance or historical link to the country. 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. Find out whether you have Scots ancestry in this fascinating compilation.
