    Really more of question. “The Donald” now pres. elect of USA. Do all Scots have Clan affiation? Do Scottish “historical records” list a TRUMP in Clan records?

    • Amanda Moffet

      The answer to both of those questions is no. Trump is not a Clan or a Scottish name. It is of English and German origin.
      The Donald has a Scottish connection through his mother who was a MacLeod – so he’d be Clan MacLeod. Trump is not his Scottish connection.

        No. Trump was not his father’s name. He anglicized his German name to Trump. The Donald is half Scot. His mother, who was beautiful, grew up in Scotland.

    • Delilah Zvirblis

      Actually, the Donald’s family changed their name to Trump once they emigrated to the United States; it was originally Drumpf (which sounds German)

        trump is not very well liked even by some of his scottish family who coldn’tcare less if he visit’s them or not
