Name Meaning

Scottish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Coluim ‘son of Colum’, a personal name derived from Latin columba ‘dove’ (now often found as Calum). This was the name of the 6thcentury missionary known in English as St. Columba ( 521–97 ), who converted the Picts to Christianity and founded an influential monastery on the island of Iona.
