Scottish Boys Names - the most
popular names given to baby boys in Scotland.
Name : Thomas
Scottish boy's name originating in the Bible. Origins are believed to be in an Aramaic word meaning 'twin'. In Scotland Thomas is very often shortened to Tom or Tommy. In Glasgow the name will often be mutated to Tam. In America the name ranked in the Top Ten for many decades around the turn of the 19th Century and in Britain it has often been in the Top 10 boys names in recent years. However, possibly due to its religious background it is slowly losing popularity.
