    Honestly, I don't see Scotland as being boy or girl, because it doesn't sound like a name to me. I mean, India? Yes. Ireland? Sure. But Scotland? Something makes it ill suited to be a first name.

    If you ever have a girl, Caledonia would be great for you. It means "from Scotland"!
    Best or luck. I would stick with Scott.

    I'd stick with Scott for a boy.
    He actually doesn't have anymore family in Scotland and they really miss it... a lot. So it would take up a special place in their hearts.

    I've met people named India, Africa, and China... all doing just fine. I also heard a dad calling for his little Ireland at he park, and I too know of a Caledonia. You must remember that it doesn't matter at all what strangers think. So long as you and DH love it, you should use it.

    As someone who is of Scottish heritage I find it weird and my Scottish grandma would find it absolutely terrible. I prefer Scott or find a scottish name for example Lachlan, Angus, Campbell, Fraser, Lennox and Rory all sound great with Rucker and are Scottish names that would work in the US, I live in Australia and I've known people with all those names (Lachlan being a top 10 choice)
