An ancient Pictish-Scottish family was the first to use the name Baid. It is a name for someone who 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."

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 Baid:
