Alexander name in Scotland derives from the McAlistair Clan
I can trace my ancestor back to a village just outside of Cardiff in southern Wales. He settled in the United States in the early to mid 1800s, my father still farms part of the land he purchased there. Once it gets back to Wales, it gets a little hazy though. I have friends in Turkey whom I keep telling I am coming to reconquer the land my ancestor did, they don't care for that much.
So what does my name mean then if Alexander is short for Alexandrs and my dad is Greek and Spaniard i looked up my family and found out i am related to king Alexander the great
You never know we might be related to Alexander the Great we never know.
as an interesting fact, Saunders, sanders etc, are all derived from the surname Alexander, remember Greece took over England, so even if you don't have Greek origins etc if you actually trace your original family surname, you may actually be related to some royalty, as the name Alexander was given to the upper class, Saunders is a pet form of Alexander, which is derived from the greek name Alexandros :D
want to know more about the alexanders thatcame over from scotland
Alexis Christain Alexander
Alexis is helper of men, Alexander is defender of mankind, gives me something to live up to. :)
Sorry, not an Alexander, but we have a lot of Alexanders in our genealogy. Also, just because you are an Alexander, it doesn't mean you are related to Alexander the great OR you are Greek. If you are NOT Greek, your descendants will certainly not be Greek, unless you or one of your descendants marry a Greek person.
I'm Tom Alexander, just because my surname is alexander does it mean I have descendants that are Greek?
