The Badd family saga is rooted in the people of the Pictish Clan of ancient Scotland. The Badd family lived in the lands of Baad near Stirling and also from the lands of the same name in Perthshire since the Middle Ages. The name is also derived from the Gaelic word bad which means "thicket" or "hamlet."
