    Which Scottish Clan Are You a Member Of?

    I'm a member of Clan Gordon. I was passed on the Gordon name as my middle name from one of my grand-uncles who immigrated from Scotland. He bore the name as a surname.

    Clan Lyon from my dads and Clan Redpath (a very unknown clan, as we got our arses handed to us and for the most part disbanded) from my mums side.

    and Clan Lyon is a sept of the Farquharson's.

    I am not actually a member of any clan, but I qualify for membership in Clans Sutherland, Donnachaidh, Grant, MacLaren, Douglas, Somerville, Hunter, and a few others, being a recent descendant of all of the aforementioned. The problem is that my direct paternal line, while from Scotland, is of ambiguous clan association. The American branch of Clan MacDuff claims my surname as a sept, but I have not been able to confirm that with any branch in Scotland itself. I would not feel at home in any association other than that which is linked to my paternal line, so I suppose it will remain a mystery for now.

    Is there any way you could find out? For example, surnames? Btw, it wasn't an uncle, I was mistaken, it was a grandfather on my mother's side.

    The name Gordon is territorial and the family who took the name are believed to have been of Anglo-Norman descent, moving from the Borders to Aberdeenshire. The wild boar’s head appears on the Gordon arms because, legend says, the first Gordon saved a Scottish king from an attacking boar.

    According to the text, the progenitor of the Gordon family in Scotland was Sir Adam de Gordon, who came to Scotland from Normandy during the reign of David I of Scotland (1124-1158).
