I have been doing research, and found that my ancestors came from Ayrshire, Scotland.  Are there any saints that come from this area, or around it?

It seems that everyone in Church celebrates a Slava, and they pick a saint reflecting their ancestry (they are converts, btw).  I'm looking for a saint to be the patron of the Hardin clan  Grin

Our very own Fr. Peter Farrington was working on something called "Saints and Holy People of the British Isles", maybe he can help you out.

If you email Fr Andrew over at Orthodox England ( http://www.orthodoxengland.org.uk ), where I got this info, he may be able to point you to a more extensive hagiography. An icon would have to be a custom job, in all likelihood.

You could email the blogger and see if they have a different file, preferably in a raw format, which you could take and have a copy made, which could be rather large and look much better than a printed out jpeg.

Saint Ninian was the Apostle to the Southern Picts and had missionary activity in Ayrshire. Also Saint Colm Cille (or Columba) is important for all of Scotland.

Question:  Are Scots considered Germanic or Celtic?

Question:  Are Scots considered Germanic or Celtic?

Really... both. The "Scottish" identity came from Gaelic migrants from Ireland in the Roman era (which was also called Scotia at the time). Gaelic became predominate throughout Scotland (replacing the Brythonic language of the Picts, which would have been pretty similar) up till around the 1400's, and there was a Germanic presence in the South East (in addition to Norse settling all over the place and becoming Gaelicised). Up till then to be "Scottish" was to have a Gaelic identity, Scots were aware of and proud of their origins in Ireland.

About 15th century things started to change big time. The Germanic language spoken in Scotland, which was known as Inglis, became known as "Scots" (which used to refer to the Gaelic language) instead. Gaelic was now called Erse (Irish), and disparaged as "foreign." Gaelic, and the Gaelic identity, has spiralled out of use since then. To the point where in some historically Gaelic speaking areas you can find people with Gaelic names in town with Gaelic names who will assert Gaelic is foreign and they get grumpy when there are propositions to teach Gaelic and not Scots in schools.

So, Scots are a mixture of Gaelic and Germanic people. A Gaelic name, most of them only speak a Germanic language, and a culture which is a mix.

(Can you tell I used to want to go to college for Celtic Studies?)

St. Donald is from Scotland. I think there's an icon of him at the 'Come and See' icons site.
