a surname derived from the Norse Somerled, which means Samuel. In
the Gaelic it is Somhairle. The Camerons of Glennevis were called
MacSorley, while those of Strone were MacGillonies, and those of
Letterfinlay were MacMartins. These septs, says Gregory, (Highland
and Isles, p. 77,) were all ancient families in Lochaber, and
seem to have adopted the surname of Cameron, although not descended
of the family.
