Scottish baby names

Updated: April 9th, 2024

Scotland is a country located in Europe, at the northern end of Great Britain. It is full of the eventful history of invasions and battles which gives rise to distinctive origins of Scottish baby names.

Scottish baby names are inspired from traditional Celtic, Gaelic and Old English as well as also influenced from neighbouring countries like Italy, France, and Norway. Also, Scottish baby names differ depending on the regions like Lowland and Highland areas that have different names. Usually Scottish male names are strong and manly while Scottish female names are soft, tender, dainty and feminine. Few examples of most popular Scottish baby names are Alexander, James, and Anabel.
