Name Meaning

Scottish: habitational name from any of various places called from their situation on a river named with Gaelic dubh ‘dark, black’ + glas ‘stream’ (a derivative of glas ‘blue’). There are several localities in Scotland and Ireland so named, but the one from which the surname is derived in most if not all cases is Douglas in Lanarkshire 20 miles south of Glasgow, the original stronghold of the influential Douglas family and their retainers.

History: The family taking their name from Douglas in Lanarkshire were of Flemish origin. They rose to great prominence in the 14th and 15th centuries, controlling the earldoms of Douglas, Morton, and Angus, and later, Queensberry.
