Clan History

young_img_historyYoung History

The name Young was originally used to distinguish a son from his father when they shared a common forename.  It was also used in the case of multiple sons by the father’s heir.  Consequently this is a fairly common surname in Scotland, being frequently found in the Borders region and also the Northeast regions of Angus and Kincardineshire.
