The Tulloch surname comes the name of a place called Tulloch, on the Firth of Cromarty. The place name comes from the Gaelic word "tulach," meaning a "hillock." Tulloch is classed as a habitation surname, as it derived from an existing place name.

Tulloch Early Origins



The surname Tulloch was first found in Ross-shire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rois) a former county, now part of the Council Areas of Highland and Western Isles in Northern Scotland, which emerged from the Gaelic lordship of the Earl of Ross, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, whereas the Tullos variant is from the area of Torry, a suburb of Aberdeen and takes its name from the Vale of Tullos which lies between Tullos Hill and Torry Hill.
