An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2018


An ancient Pictish-Scottish family was the first to use the name Dogg. It is a name for someone who lived in the Kilmadok district of Scotland. The Scottish Dogg surname is derived from the Gaelic Mac Gille Doig, which means "son of the servant of St. Cadog." The personal name Cadog was Welsh, and has no connection to the name of the animal.

Dogg Early Origins



The surname Dogg was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, where they held a family seat from early times.

The Great Migration



Scots left their country by the thousands to travel to Australia and North America. Desperate for freedom and an opportunity to fend for themselves, many paid huge fees and suffered under terrible conditions on long voyages. Still, for those who made the trip, freedom and opportunity awaited. In North America, many fought their old English oppressors in the American War of Independence. In recent years, Scottish heritage has been an increasingly important topic, as Clan societies and other organizations have renewed people's interest in their history. An examination of passenger and immigration lists shows many early settlers bearing the name of Dogg: Charles Doig who settled in Pennsylvania in the year 1775; followed by John in 1802.
