The name Campbell comes from the Gaelic “Cam Beul” meaning ‘curved mouth’, a nickname given to Dugald on Lochawe, who supposedly used to speak out of one side of his mouth. The Earl of Campbell fought alongside James IV at the Battle of Flodden, fought as Convenanters during the Civil War and led a number of bloody attacks against the Jacobites, even help defeat them at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. During the 18th Century, the Campbells formed half of the companies of the Black Watch (along with companies, one each, from Clans Fraser, Munro and Grant) with their warrior natures to guard and protect the Highlands, and authorized to wear their kilt and bear arms.
