Clan History



MacTavish History

The name MacTavish is derived from the phoenetic pronunciation of MacTamhais which means “Son of Tammais” (Son of Thomas).

It is likely that this changed in the 17th century as English became a more common language in Scotland than native Gaelic. Many other forms of the name manifest including Thompson, MacOmish and MacCombie
