The McOmish surname is derived from the Gaelic "Mac Tómais," meaning "son of Thomas."

McOmish Early Origins



The surname McOmish 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 the history of this particular Clan actually begins with another larger clan from which the MacThomases are derived, the Clan MacKintosh. The clan's progenitor was Adam M'Intosh, son of William, of Garvamore, son of the seventh chief of the Clan MacKintosh and held a family seat at Garvamore in Badenoch about the 13th century. The name most frequently became M'Thomas (son of Thomas) but was often spelt M'Thomis, M'Homie, M'Omie, M'Comie and others. The Thoms variant was first listed as Patrick Hunter Thoms, son of George Thomas. From this spelling the Thowmis, Thowms and Thownis spellings were derived.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Deo Juvante Invidiam Superabo
Motto Translation: With God's help, I will overcome envy
