The map shows the approximate location of two hundred and seventy of the most common Scottish surnames. It gives a general idea of where the main clans were located but near the main towns and cities the names have been necessarily compressed.

The earliest accurate records began after the Norman conquest of England in 1066.

Although Scotland remained unconquered and a sovereign and independent state until after the Act of Union in 1707 the invading Edward I initiated "The Ragmen Roll" in 1296. This was a list of mainly lowland Scots nobility, landlords and civic authorities. The names on the map are either mentioned in "The Ragman Roll" or else are taken from the earliest possible reference to a particular individual from the relevant district.

Many names were widespread and it is virtually impossible to locate accurately where the first "Brown", or "Young", or "Auld"; might have come from.

Consider the five main sources:

  1. The large influx of Norman families after 1066 included such names as Agnew, Balliol, Charteris, Bruce, Colville, Fraser, Hay, Melville, Grant, Cummin, Lindsay, Gifford, Sinclair and Montgomerie. These names are mostly derived from places in north western France.
  2. Locality names: Stirling, Dunbar, Scotland, Lauder, Murray, Fife, Craig, Muir etc.
  3. Occupational names: Mainly occurring round the towns and cities where English rather than Gaelic was the dominant language. For example Stewart, Hunter, Lorimer.
  4. Patronymics: The prefix "Mac" is Gaelic for "son of". So clan names such as "Donald" or "Gregor" would become MacDonald or MacGregor. The suffix "Son" was also added so names such as Robertson, Nicolson, and Anderson occur.
  5. Nicknames: Descriptive adjectives such as "Auld, "Gray", "Small", or "Lang" in English and "Dunn", "Duff", "Glass" in Gaelic need no explanation.
