    Hello and Welcome, I am not really sure whether this name is of Scottish origin (smith is, I think, a name derived from a profession, such as Potter, Weaver, Baker?), I know, however, a great bunch of wonderful Scots named Smith.

      Smith

      You are right, JD, it is an 'occupational' name - and many Smiths are of Scots origins, but they are also of English and German origin.

      I know that in the USA there is a Clan Smith Society - but how 'official' that society is, I have no idea. I would suspect that as it calls itself a Clan SOCIETY that there is no recognition of a Chief by the Lord Lyon... but as I say, I am not sure!

      This is the URL for a Smith Society which may prove useful to Llynton

        Using my mini clan finder I have come up with the
        following.
        Smith is associated with the following Clans.
        Chattan.
        MacFarlane.
        MacKintosh.
        MacPherson.
        The last 2 being the most probable associates.
        If you knew which area of Scotland you are looking at then the task would be easier.
