Clan Young is a Scottish clan. The clan does not currently have a clan chief and therefore it is considered an armigerous clan.
The name Young is clearly personal and descriptive, however it may have also been applied to distinguish a father from a son if both had the same Christian name. In this case the name in Scotland is synonymous with Younger, which was used to describe the heir to a feudal title. Earliest records of the name in Scotland include Malmor and Ade Young who appear at Dumbarton in 1271. In 1342 John Young of Dingwall witnessed a charter by the Earl of Ross to Reginald who was the son of the Lord of the Isles.
