The word clan is from the Gaelic and means “children.” Originally the clan families were made up of the descendents of one man and his children. The Clan names which are in use today have come down from the founders of the royal dynasties of the Picts, the Scots, and the Vikings in the Highlands as well as the noble families of the Britons, Flemish, Normans, Angles, and Saxons in the Lowlands and Borders.
Today Clan Family Societies are generally formed for educational, literary, social, or other beneficial purposes, to further friendships and share the heritage of the clan family.
