Hi my name is brown and I still live in the UK and as far as I know any one with a colour after there name is brown black white grey ect are not our real names but are pseudonym as our names where outlawed .. but why or how or when I can't find out some say that we were MacGregor s. But If our true name was outlawed then surly no other Clan will go by the original name as it would have been outlawed as well.
All I know is like we say in Scotland we are all jock tams bairns which means we are all the same. I personally am proud to be Scottish but am also glad that we live in a world where we have advanced to a new age of knowledge that we are here for a short time and have the power to change old pregudices.
