    Name Meaning

    English and Scottish: patronymic from the personal name Adam + Middle English son, meaning ‘son of Adam’. The surname is especially common in Scotland, where it is borne by a sept of clan McIntosh. In North America, this surname has absorbed some Polish and possibly also other European patronymics and other derivatives from the personal name Adam. Compare Adams .
