Clan History

boyd_img_historyBoyd History

The origin of the name is alternatively descriptive or geographic, though it is undoubtedly Gaelic. As a descriptive term the name may derive from ‘buidhe’ meaning ‘fair’ or ‘yellow’. It may also refer to Bute, the island next in size to Arran, that is called ‘Bod” in Gaelic, the genitive case of which is ‘Boid.’
