Meaning & History

Scottish Gaelic Faries (meaning: fair, beautiful, or handsome) is derived from ancient Scottish Dalriadan MacFergus clans of the mountainous west coast of Scotland. Faries held a family seat at Rutherglen {Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig)} some say before the Norman Conquest (1066). An ancient couplet translates to "no man can remember when there hasn't been a family of Faries at Rutherglen."
