Background: The name Anderson meaning "son of Andrew" although widespread in Scotland is also found in Europe particularly in Scandinavia. In the Highlands the form MacAndrew is more commonly found and this family is thought to be connected with the Clan Anrias, a sept of Clan Ross who were also associated with the Clan Chattan federation from the beginning of the 15th century. In the Kinrara manuscript it is claimed that the MacAndrews came to Badenoch from Moidart about 1400. The first recording of this name appears on the Ragman Rolls of 1296 when David le fiz Andreu, Burgess of Peebles, and Duncan fiz Andreu of Dumfries were among those to swear allegiance to Edward I.

Variations: Aindrea, Andesoune, Andy, Androsone, Andrews, Andirsoune, Andrson, Andrew, Andersonne, Andersone, Andison, Andrewson, Andirsoone, Andersoune, Anndra, Andie, Andersoun, Andree, Androe, Andro, Andyrson, Androsoun, Androsoune, Andreson, Andresoun, Andrewes, Androw, Androson, Endherson, Endirsone, Enderson, Andson, Andirstoun, Andirston, Anderston, Macandrew, Macaindreis, Macandro, Macandrie, Macandy, Mackandrew, Makandro, Anderson.
