    Name Meaning

    Scottish and Irish: habitational name from the barony of Ogilvie in Glamis, Angus, whose name is probably Pictish, of uncertain origin and meaning.

    History: A Scottish family of this name descend from Gilibride, Earl of Angus (died c. 1187), whose son Gilbert was granted the lands of Ogguluin (Ogilvie) in the late 12th century. Ogilvie was also the name of a barony in Banffshire, but that took its name from the surname.
