Clan History

Meikle History

Meikle, also seen spelt Mickel and Mickle, is an old Middle Scots word meikill, meikle, mekill meaning ‘big, large’, and may have been used to describe the first person to bear the name. Examples include Mekle John Burne in Branxhelm in 1495, and in 1516 a Mekill Henry Nikson.

There is, however, no evidence to suggest that the name is a form of Michael.
