Highland Scots Naming Patterns - Cheryl Crowder
Subject: Highland Scots Naming Patterns

I just learned that the Highland Scots used to name their first male child
after the paternal grandfather (of the child) and the second male child
after the maternal grandfather.  QUESTION:  How rigid was this pattern?
Should I count on it in terms of determining lineage or just use as a
guideline?  Would love to hear your personal experience with this naming
