Scottish Names

Popular Scottish names for boys and girls

Top Scottish Baby Names

When choosing any nationality name for your child, consider meanings, influential people who share the name as well as how the name sits next to surnames and middle names. Although many Scottish male names can sound strong and masculine, Scottish girls names often sound very soft and feminine, a common trait of Gaelic and Celtic names.

Scottish names have many distinct origins from the eventful history of the country (think battles and invasions scattered through thousands of years). Influences range from the classic Gaelic, Celtic and Olde English as well as influences from Norway, France and Italy. Traditionally, the Highland and Lowland areas would have different names depending on the specific regions, however today Scottish names as a whole are much more evenly dispersed throughout the nation, also commonly being found further afar with the Scottish diaspora of the last few centuries. For similar style baby names from Great Britain see our Irish baby names and our Welsh baby names.

A Scottish name for your baby is a great way to express an adventurous and rugged little boy or an elegant and poised princess. Often sounding mythical and magical, a Scottish baby name is a great start to a unique and original personality.
