Background: Stephen (which means 'crown' or 'wreath' or 'garland') has been a popular Christian name since the martyrdom of the saint of that name. The name was introduced into Britain by the Normans after 1066 and their influence spread into Scotland. Early records of the name include a deacon Stephen who witnessed a charter around 1150-71 and Ada, filius (son) of Stephani was a burgess of Elgin in 1286. Henricus Stepheni had a charter for land in Ayr in 1409 and a Nichol fitz Steven, chaplain of Scotland, had a license to take shipping between Scotland and London or Dover in England in 1372. The name became frequent all over the Lowlands of Scotland, but in the Gaelic-speaking Highlands there is no 'Mac' (son of) name derived from Stephen.

Variations: Stevenson, Stephen, Stephanos, Stephani, Steven, Steywynson, Stevenston, Stiven, Steenson, Steinson, Stein.
