    My vote was for Maureen. It is a bit dated, but that is why I like it. It is refreshing!
    The one person I know from Scotland is named Margaret, but Margaret is just a common name used in other countries too. The Margaret I know has a daughter named Lorna. We were friends in high school. It is from a novel, Lorna Doone. I have never read it, but I know that she has.
    There was a girl named Morven in our high school too. I don't think she was from Scotland, but that is a very Scottish name.
    Other Scottish names for girls are:
    Nessie (from the Loch Ness monster) - a nn for Agnes or Vanessa or Renesmee (just kidding) Agnes is actually Scottish.
    Ainsley
    Greer
    Marsaili
    Effemy
    Ailsa
    Vanora
    Scotia means Scotland and there is also Caledonia

This is all somewhat new to me, I'm actually about 90% German myself.
    That's so interesting! My name is Margaret, and a while back, I was speaking to an older Scottish gentleman on the phone (I'm a receptionist). When I said my name was Maggie, he said, "Oh, are you Scottish?" It confused me, but now I know why.

    I voted for Moira, but I also like Iona a lot. Isla is also very pretty, but it's become popular recently so it doesn't specifically say Scottish to me.

    One of my best friends is Scottish, and she's called Mhairi (pronounced Vari), which is the vocative of Mairi. In Gaelic it's what you would have shouted at Mairi when you really needed to get her attention! I think it's a beautiful name. When we started school together teachers were constantly asking her how to pronounce her name, but that didn't last too long!
