Tartan For Me!

Suggested Tartans for Scottish, Scotch-Irish, Irish, and North American Surnames with Lists of Clan, Family, and District Tartans.
Tartan is a living textile art form with a tradition that began in the Highlands of Scotland. Tartans listed here are mainly from the Scottish Tartans Authority but are supplemented by the author's personal knowledge, his contact with other scholars, and a variety of published and unpublished sources. A person may wear any tartan of his or her choice (with a few exceptions). A national tartan (such as Hunting Stewart, Caledonia, or Black Watch) or a district tartan is suggested for all Scots and friends of Scotland, but the wearer may choose something more personal such as a clan or family tartan, if appropriate.

Tartan For Me! Tartan For Me!
New Expanded 9th Edition by Philip D. Smith, Jr. (PhD, FSTS, GTS, FSA Scot)

This edition of Tartan for Me! contains a revised and expanded Tartan-Name list. Thousands of Scottish, Cornish, Welsh, Manx, Irish, and non-Celtic surnames have been added-over 3,200 Irish and over 1,000 Welsh, Manx, and Cornish surnames are included in this edition.
Three maps supplement the text: a map of district tartan areas, a map of the approximate locations of some major clans and families, and, new to this edition, a map of Irish districts. Information is included on how to locate uncommon tartans, the meaning of color, the recording of tartans, and when to wear a tartan. Surnames are arranged alphabetically, providing quick reference to the right tartan for you. 2005, 8½x11, paper, spiral binding, 218 pp.
