New Scottish Names Articles
I have made three new articles about Scottish naming available to the
*Early 16th Century Scottish Lowland Names
These given names and surnames are appropriate for early 16th
century, Scots-speaking Lowlanders, based on data from the town of
Aberdeen from 1500-1550. They are not appropriate for Gaelic-speaking
Highlanders! (This article supersedes an earlier article "Early 16th
Century Scottish Town Women's Names", which has been removed.)
*Scottish Gaelic Given Names for Women (Draft in Progress Edition)
*Scottish Gaelic Given Names for Men (Draft in Progress Edition)
These two are the beginnings of articles on given names used by
Scottish Gaelic men before 1600. At the moment they are mainly just
quotes of evidence, with little or no interpretation. They should be
used with extreme caution and only after reading the cautions and
disclaimers at the start of the articles and the introductions. Note
that the information in these articles will be changing as more is
added and corrected.
