Shaw

Clan Shaw is a Scottish clan, part of the Chattan Confederation and formerly a sept of Clan MacKintosh.
The Shaw family found themselves constantly beset by their larger neighbour the Clan Comyn/Cumming. They sought support by becoming allies with the powerful Clan Donald through marriage. Later they also became part of the Chattan Confederation as a sept of the Clan MacKintosh and then later they became a clan of their own.
The origin of the name is derived from the old highland Gaelic name of 'Sithech' meaning 'wolf'. the lowland Gaelic spelling is 'sceaga' meaning small wood or thicket. The Gaelic names for the clan are Na Siach, or Mhic Sheaghd. It is interesting to note that the Shaws are never referred to in Gaelic as 'Clan Shaw', but simply as 'the Shaws'.
Definition: A thicket, small wood, or clearing in the trees; dweller by the wood.
