Origin of the Name McCullough



The ancient history of the name McCullough was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of McCullough include McCullach, McCullagh, McCully, McCullie and McCoulie. This name means 'wild boar'. Malcolm Canmore dispatched Lulach, King of the Scots, who succeeded Macbeth. The MacCullochs owned considerable lands in the province of Ross and the MacCullochs in Argyllshire were associated with the Clan MacDougall. In Ireland this name is derived from the Gaelic MacCuUladh or MacConUladh Septs, which translates as 'hound of Ulster'. In County Donegal and County Tyrone the variants MacCullow and Cully are often used while the variants Culloo and Coloe are to be found in County Clare. This name and its variants were also brought into Ulster Province by settlers from Scotland during the seventeenth century.
The McCullough coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all McCullough descendants.
