Scottish baby names

Brave, proud and bold are just a few of the character traits that are embedded to names of Scottish origin.

Strong personality and tradition, cultural and natural beauty are qualities of the land and the people, that you undoubtedly want to find in the name you will choose for your baby boy or girl.

The early Scottish names mainly originated from Celts and Picts. Parents in Medieval Scotland, didn’t have the freedom to choose baby names as we have today.

There is a great diversity of Scottish names, due to the mixture and influences of other cultures, such as the Roman and the Scandinavian.

Scots are polite and practical, reserved and forthright, hard working and appreciative of the arts.

A recent study published by the Cambridge University suggests that Scottish people are the most friendly people in Britain.

Descending from Celtic tribes, the Picts and the Caledonians, they learnt to fight and claim their pride and freedom through tough times and all sorts of invaders.

Scotland has given us creative, meaningful and attractive names to choose from.
