I'm reading a book at the moment, you know one of those scottish romance novels where every man is gorgeous ...The main character is called Drustan MacKeltar. Since I have never heared of that family name I went searching our tartan finder but I couldn't find anything. So does that family name exist or did the author just invent it?

Hi Talisien

I am pretty sure thats its a made up name. None of the clan finders that I use, show anything about this name. I even tried the house of names, and it wanted more info on this name so they could research it more. Sorry I couldn't help more, but Maybe Marhar can come up with something on this.

Sorry I have drawn a blank as well.
All I come up with is The Dark Morning by Karen Marie Moning. I presume that it is a made up name to sound like MacKellar.

Marhar.

Ah thanks! The book is really good, the guys from our 'scottish romance thread' told me about it. I'm not really a great romance reader but I'm slowly getting in to it Not hard with all those sexy men!

"where every man is gorgeous"? Ah, a nice work of fiction, then, like the bus timetables.

Drustan would be workable as a variant of Tristan, as in the Cornish legend, but I have *never* heard of the name "McKeltar". That doesn't prove anything, of course, but, well, I'd reckon it was made up.
