Malcolm History

The name Malcolm derives from the gaelic ‘Maol’, meaning ‘shaven-head’, and was used generally as a term for a monk. Thus ‘Maol Chalum’ can be translated as ‘monk’ or ‘disciple of Columba’.

The connection between the names Malcolm and MacCallum is shrouded in mystery although they are sometimes shown as alternative names for the same clan.
