|From the ancient Gaelic name Dhuibh, pronounced Duff. Came MacDuff (in Gaelic Mac means son-of) therefore MacDuff means son-of-Duff. From these early MacDuffs came Finda Mor who's sons from his first wife Reid took the name of Mac Ianla, from Fionn-laidh which is the Gaelic form of Findlay, meaning son of Findlay.These four sons settled at "The Annie" a corruption of the Gaelic An-Abhainfheidh, meaning "The Ford of the Stag," which is near Callender in Perthshire.In Scotland it was MacKinlay and in Ireland after James "The Trooper" MacKinlay went there in 1690 came the name McKinley.|
