MacCallum History

In its original Gaelic, Saint Columba’s name was Colm. MacCallum means ‘son of Colm’.

The ancient Kingdom of Dalriada where the first Scots of Ireland settled was home to Columba and the ancestors of the MacCallums. Despite all this we should not see the two as relations in blood but interpret the name MacCallum as ‘follower of Columba’.
