Seth History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Irish, Scottish


The surname Seth was both an Irish and Scotch name. It is derived from the Gaelic personal name "Sithech," meaning "wolf."

Early Origins of the Seth family


The surname Seth 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 on the lands of Muthill with manor and estates in that shire. The first mention of the Clan was their recorded presence at the General Council by King Malcolm Canmore at Forfar in 1061. However, this name has come to be known as Irish where it is a common name, especially in north-east Ulster.

The Seth 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: Te Ipsum nosce
Motto Translation: know thyself.
