Tartan is a living textile art form with a tradition that began in the Highlands of Scotland. The Scots came from Ireland in the fifth century and for a millennium the two nations shared a mutual culture and a mutual language. What they did not share was the development of tartan. Historically, the Irish did not wear tartans; however, there are names associated with certain tartans that are clearly Irish in origin. A brief examination of the history of the tartan in Ireland, Irish names, and the divisions of Ireland precede the "Tartan-Name" list. "Septs" and "Clans," s... View more info

This informative and extremely helpful guide explains the relatively simple evolution of names such as Neill to O'Neill, as well as the baffling transfiguration of Johnson to McShane. It also describes the interchangeable use of different surnames, a practice which resulted from the translation of names between the English and Irish languages. The name Smith, for example, could have been used interchangeably with Gowan, Goan, Gow, McGowan, or O'Gowan; each of these representing the Anglicized form of the Irish word gobha-a smith.
