SCOTT
Gender: Masculine

Usage: English, Scottish

Pronounced: SKAHT [key]

From a surname which meant "Scotsman" in Old English. The original meaning of the word Scot is debated, but it may mean "tattoo", so given because Scotsmen often had tattoos.

This is from the Behind the Name website for first names at:
