Scott holds the very inspired meaning of “from Scotland,” but don’t let that stop you from using this name if you’re not from there. It’s easy to say, easy to write and just sounds laidback and cool. It was a name superstar in the 70s, but has since taken a downward turn.


  • english: From Scotland, a Gael; also a surname
  • scottish: Wanderer
