DUNCAN CLAN CREST

The Scottish surname Duncan, also found in Ireland is derived from the Gaelic personal name Donnchadh, composed of the elements donn ‘brown-haired man’ or ‘chieftain’ and a derivative of cath ‘battle.’In Ireland the name may also be an anglicized equivalent of Gaelic Ó Duinnchinn ‘descendant of Donncheann’, a byname composed of the elements donn ‘brown-haired man’ or ‘chieftain’ and ceann ‘head’. Early recordings include that of Dunchad, the eleventh abbot of Iona, who died in 717, and Dunchad, the abbot of Dunkeld, who was killed in the battle of Dorsum Crup, Perthshire, in the year 965. The name was borne by two 11th Century kings of Scotland, Duncan 1, who was slain by MacBeth in 1040, and Duncan II, slain in 1094.
