The sea-swept Hebrides islands and the west coast of Scotland are the ancestral home of the Alpine family. Their name comes from the son of the blond one, or son of Alpin.

Alpine Early Origins



The surname Alpine was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they were descended from King Kenneth MacAlpin who was murdered by the Picts near Dundee in the year 834. MacAlpin is generally considered to have been the first king to rule both Scots and Picts, and as such, was the first king of Scotland.
