My full first name is Douglas, although I prefer “Doug” as it takes less syllables to pronounce. 🙂
There are several forms of my name which come from different nationalities:
- English: Douglas
- Scottish: Douglas, Douglass
- Gaelic: Dugald, Dougal

- Irish: Dugald, Dougal
My name also has several origins:

- Dugald comes from the Gaelic, meaning “dark stranger”, and from the
celtic, meaning “black hair”.
