Need some help with a Scottish name

[name]Just[/name] wondering what some good Scottish boy and girl names are. I cant seem to find many good lists anywhere. Thanks! :slight_smile:

I started a thread on this a few weeks back. Here is a link to some people came up with:

https://nameberry.com/nametalk/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4490&p=62640&hilit=clova#p62640

Was mostly place name centred lists though so sorry if you’re not into that.

I actually generally like place names:) so thanks for the thread! Im sure it will be helpful:)

A lot of English names are used in [name]Scotland[/name], simply with different spellings - [name]Isobel[/name] and [name]Iseabail[/name] for [name]Isabel[/name], Cairistiona for [name]Christina[/name], [name]Beitris[/name] for Beatice, [name]Aonghus[/name] for [name]Angus[/name], [name]Filib[/name] for [name]Philip[/name] etc.

Many names common in [name]Scotland[/name] are also used in [name]Ireland[/name], and sometimes [name]Wales[/name]. The Scottish also have a fondness for feminising unexpected names, making Donalda, [name]Jamesina[/name] et cetera. Quite a few of the names listed would probably seem dated in [name]Scotland[/name] now, or even archaic - generally, [name]Ava[/name] and [name]Isabella[/name] abound there, as well.

I think of these names as Scottish

[name]Isla[/name]
[name]Glenn[/name]
[name]Ewan[/name]

I agree…plus, for boys:
[name]Kyle[/name]
[name]Kirk[/name]
[name]Douglas[/name]
[name]Lewis[/name]

For girls:
[name]Skye[/name]

Loving the name [name]Lachlan[/name] at the moment!
