You are evidently laboring under the false assumption that the word "Clan" denotes some particular status or rank beyond its accepted definition of "family" "kindred" or "offspring". In fact the word "Clan" means precisely a group of related families sharing a common ancestry and descent, which is exactly what the Clan Akins is, and our history does indeed go back many centuries in Scotland, though our name has been spelled in a variety of different ways in that country over the past 600 years (Akin, Aiken, Aikin, Eakin, etc.). Today the most common form of spelling used is Akins, and it is for that reason that the Clan is known by that name. There are well over 50,000 individuals here in the U.S. who bear our Clan name in one of its various forms, so I'm not sure why it is that you are of the opinion that our Clan is "false" as you put it. You seem to be relying too much on what British authorities have to say, whereas the greatest majority of our Clan members reside outside of Great Britain, so what ever they may think about us is really quite irrelevant. We had a little thing called the Revolutionary War a couple of hundred years ago that pretty much severed whatever ties the people in the U.S. had to the British government, so British rules, laws, and opinions aren't worth a hill of beans anywhere except for in Britain, and as I've already said, very few of our clanspeople still live there so whatever the Queen and her lap-dogs have to say is a moot-point.
