Gow History

It is well known that the name Smith is so widespread in the English-speaking world as it is the name that was given to so many trades people.
In Gaelic Scotland the blacksmith was known as Gobha, from which came the name Gow, and ‘son of the smith’ was Mac gobhann, which became MacGowan.
