Scoot Family History
Scott is a Gaelic surname of Old Irish origin originating in the Scottish Borders. The name subsequently became a forename, and the descendants of this kin-group since spread throughout the world giving the name to dozens of towns and cities. Scott came from Scoti or Scotti (Old Irish Scot, modern Scottish Gaelic Sgaothaich), which was the generic name given by the Romans to Gaelic raiders from Ireland. Use of the term 'Scot' by English people led to the naming of northern Great Britain as Scotland, or 'land of the Gaels'.
