Gaelic names, some rarely met with, such as MacPhunn of Dripp;

MacVainish and our local plumber, the late John MacGruer (known to one

and all as Johnny Plumb/Plum because of his rotund appearance and

infectious laugh) is pretty comprehensive and is from Làrach

Akerbeltz, one of the best Gaelic languuage sites for learners on the

Web. For definitive study, Black, George F. The Surnames of Scotland

is invaluable (Edinburgh: Birlinn, 1999 (first published by the New

York Public Library, 1946).

(Làrach is Gaelic for website; Akerbeltz is Basque for Black Goat).

http://www.akerbeltz.org/

First names follow this list of surnames. All Gaelic names have

meanings, so if you want to know the meaning of yours, I'll do my best

to oblige, although some names are so ancient that their meaning may

be obscure or the original meaning is disputed.

The word Mac means son. The "of" part is part of the surname.

Women use Nic (Ní in Irish) meaning daughter.

In Gaelic, when preceded by Mac (Son), the first consonant of the

surname is lenited, i.e. has an "h" place inserted after the initial

consonant where possible - and an "i" is placed before the last

consonant to creat the genitive ("of") case.

For example, the surname MacDonald:

Murchadh MacDhòmhnaill - Murdo, son of Donald.

Màiri NicDhòmhnaill - Màiri, daughter of Donald.

Where the name has no Mac in front it, like Campbell (Gaelic Caim Beul

- wry mouth) it is written Caimbeul for men and Chaimbeul for women.

No "i" is inserted at the end because there is no "of" required.

It may surprise some to learn that many Gaelic surnames are religious

in nature - Macilliosa (Macaleese - son of the follower of Jesus. Some

are derived from Viking names - MacNeil from Nilssen and in English as

Nelson; Macauliffe from Olafssen, etc. Others are occupational - Mac

a' Bhàird - Son of the poet - or nicknames - Cameron; twisted nose -

or Scots, English or even foreign names like Fleming - MacPhlèiminn -

names which have acquired Gaelic spellings.

In Irish naming is slightly different, but as many Irish people or

people of Irish descent live in Scotland, their rather more

complicated name rules must be mentioned:

Pádraig O'Brian - Patrick, grandson of Brian.

Pádraig Mac Briain - Patrick, son of Brian.

Máire Ní Bhriain - Mary, daughter of Brian.

A detailed explanation of Irish names can be found here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_name#Irish_surname_prefixes

Pronunciation is a whole different matter and perhaps we can deal with

that on a case by case basis. It should be noted that dialect

differences exist and in some places, like Lewis, the name Pàdraig is

used to mean Peter as well as Patrick, depending on circumstances.

Finally, I have done my best to change old accents to the one accent

now used in Gaelic, the "strac" or grave accent, written à, è, ì, ò

and ù. The Irish fada (long or acute accent) has been retained for

Irish names as á, é, í, ó and ú. The function in both languages is to

indicate that vowels so marked are drawled rather than clipped. If I

have missed any, please excuse me.
