Rod,

Mr (the middle letter being an "o" with a grave accent, in case the character doesn't publish properly), is a very common nickname meaning "big" (ie. Big Dougal). Remember that Moidart was an almost exclusively Gaelic speaking area up to the late 19th century. Though only a small minority speak Gaelic now, it is still, relative to other parts of Scotland, a Gaelic speaking area.

    Hello My father's family comes from Moidart scotland and are desendants of the Dougal Mor's. Does anyone know what Mor refers to: is it a place, it is a family. Help. Rod
