There are several spelling variations for the Clan MacDuff surname. Mac and Mc are interchangeable. (Mac in Gaelic means "son of"). 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 MacDuff spelling.

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

We make this range of Clan MacDuff Crest Jewelry and Wall Crest as your link to your Scottish bloodline.
