Home Tartan & Clan

The Haughty Homes. Haughty, eh? I'm not sure I like the sound of that! Don't worry, the name comes from the fact that many Homes have achieved great success in academic fields such as David Hume, world famous philosopher and historian (Home is pronounced Hume, David changed it so the English wouldn't get confused), Lord Kames, or Henry Home, one of Scotland's Institutional Writers - An Institutional writer being an academic whose writings are considered formal sources of Scot's law. As well as Academics, the Homes can count successful playwrights, balladists and a Prime Minister as members of their clan.
