This generator will produce 15 random Scottish names and surnames. Scotland is a nation of approximately 5.5 million inhabitants in the Northern area of the United Kingdom. Scotland has a long tradition of dispute with England even before its ultimate unification during the Middle Ages. There is a great deal of friction between the English and the Scots today, but it is generally pleasant in nature and politics may be an exception. As far as names are concerned, Scottish names have changed a lot into more English names. Traditional versions found in this generator have been translated into anglicized versions or simply for more modern English names. This is not to suggest that there are no traditional Scottish names left today, but they are not as common as Irish names, for instance.

What is a Scottish surname? Scottish last names are derived from the place of origin in Scotland, such as Inverness-shire, Argyll and Bute, or Renfrewshire. Traditionally, clan members would live in the same locality and in some cases, even have an ancestral castle to hold social gatherings. In the clan system, every clan had a chief or leader who had direct control over his people. Today, however, there are several variations of this tradition. For example, there are numerous clan names that refer to areas outside Scotland itself.
There are several different types of Scottish last names that can be used to derive a name. The first type is one that incorporates the surname of a place, such as Inverness-shire, Renfrewshire, and Angus, which all contain the same name, in order to form a more easily remembered name. Another type is one that combines a family name with a particular city, town, or region, as with Moray and the Isle of Skye, where there are a large number of Scottish surnames. A third type is one that is part of a set of names. These include places that were part of Scotland during the medieval period, such as Perth and Inverness. This type usually combines names that were common in Scotland during this time period, as well as some additional commonalities between these names. A fourth type of Scottish surname involves combining a surname with a patronymic, or name of a person in Scottish history.
There are many ways to give the Scottish last name of your choice. You could use initials, or just use the full name. Some people use both, while others may only use the name. It is also possible to incorporate certain symbols that represent your clan or your Scottish heritage into your name, such as a rose or star. You could also have your last name written on a name plate or name tag that you wear, but this practice is rarely used. If you want to keep your identity private, you could even choose to avoid using your middle name in public as you work in a company or in social circles. However, it is worth noting that when you are using this type of identity as a mark of distinction, you may find yourself in a position of being discriminated against if the person you are interacting with does not know who you are.
