    Name Meaning

    Scottish and Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Caluim ‘son of Calum or Colum’, a personal name derived from Latin columba ‘dove’. The surname often represents a short form of Mac Gille Caluim or Mac Giolla Coluim ‘son of the servant (i.e. devotee) of Saint Columba’ (Colum Cille). The personal name (Scottish Calum, Irish Colum, originally combined with giolla ‘servant’) has long been popular in Scotland and Ireland, due largely to the cult of Saint Columba, 521–597, who converted the Picts to Christianity and founded an influential monastery on the island of Iona. His name in Irish is Colum Cille ‘Dove of the Church’.
