About the Ross surname

Clan Ross is a Highland Scottish clan first named as such by King Malcolm IV of Scotland in 1160 (see Wikipedia). This may be the primary origin of the name.

As the name is fairly common, it is possible that immigrants with foreign surnames may have changed their surname to this for reasons varying from pronounceability in the local tongue to politics to racism. eg. Rosenberg changed to Ross.
