There are many spelling variations for Clan MacKintosh. Mac/Mc in Gaelic means "son of" is interchangeable. Included are families (known as Septs) with different surnames from the original Clan name. Throughout the centuries, surnames have continued to “develop” often leading to astonishing variants of the original MacKintosh spelling.

Those families who acquired their names through marriage or from other families combining with the clan are true Clans people. The MacIntosh Clan Crest which, all members are entitled to wear, is from the crest on the top of the Clan Chief’s “Coat of Arms”. The complete MacKintosh Coat of Arms is displayed only by the Clan Chief and passes down directly to his eldest son. The wearing of your Clan MacKintosh Chief’s Crest, is a way of honoring your Chief, your Clan and your Scottish ancestry.
