Keltic Nation Clans and Septs
A Guide to Septs

Many families joined under one Clan Chief and the Clan called by his name. These other families were full members of the Clan and wore the Clan Tartan and the Clan Crest. For example, if your name were MacCasland you would belong to the Clan Buchanan.

The following list has various family names and their Clan Association. These families are designated Septs of the named Clan. Many sources disagree on Sept names and Clans, and as you know, many spelling variations exist. We list what seems to be the most commonly accepted Clan associations, and the most common spelling variations. If you know of any significant additions to this list please send us the name, Clan and source.

Some have obvious connections (Arthur belonging to MacArthur), though they may not always be this obvious. Others have a Clan association and thus a Tartan, but also a Tartan of their own (Kilgour and Clark, for instance). If you're looking for which Tartan you're "allowed" or "supposed" to wear, well, that's another discussion...
