scottine F

old english (anglo-saxon)

The origin of this name is still today quite uncertain. The best hypothesis is: 1) A feminine version of the name and surname “Scott”, first appears in the 12th century and derived from the Anglo-Scottish border and its medieval border clans. Scott is an ethnic or geographical name signifying a native from Scotland or a person who spoke Gaelic, derived from the Old English “Scotti”, originally a generic name given by the Romans to Gaelic raiders from Ireland.
