Modern Ancient Crest
Gaelic Name: Camshron

Origin of Name: Gaelic Camshron from cam (wry) and sron (nose)
Described as ‘fiercer than fierceness itself’, the Clan Cameron is said to be one of the most ancient of Scottish clans. One theory for their inception is that they are descended from a son of the Danish King Camchron. There were numerous names circulating in the 13th century which would appear to be the progenitors of the name Cameron, all evolving from the Gaelic terms for a crooked hill and a crooked nose.
