Scottish Baby Names

Scottish names reflect the rich cultural heritage of The Scots, originally a Celtic tribe that migrated from northern Ireland. This list includes both uniquely Scottish Gaelic baby names, and other names that have been used predominantly in Scotland for so long and often that they are thought of internationally as typically Scottish names.

The most popular Scottish baby names in the US today are the red-hot Isla and Maisie for girls, thanks to actresses Isla Fisher and Maisie Williams. For boys, popular Scottish names include Graham, Kyle, Logan, Lennox, Maxwell, and Evan. Blair, Cameron, Finlay, and Rory are well-liked Scottish names that works for either gender. Other stylish Scottish names include Esme, Elsie, Fiona, Flora, Ione, and Una for girls; Duncan and Malcolm for boys.

While we include both Scottish names for girls and Scottish boys' names on this list, you can also find individual lists for each gender elsewhere on the site. But the choices here are what we consider the most stylish baby names that are also distinctly Scottish. You also might want to consult our individual lists of Scottish Names for Girls and Scottish Names for Boys.
