Angus Family History

This interesting surname has two possible origins. Firstly, it may be Scottish and Irish from the Gaelic personal name "Aonghus", composed of the elements "aon" one plus "ghus" choice; hence "unique choice". This name was borne by a famous but shadowy 8th Century Pictish King, said to be the son of Daghda, the chief god of the Irish, and Boann, who gave her name to the river Boyne. This King gave his name to the county (now part of Tayside) called Angus, and many Scots have recieved it as a given name in his honour.
