In Reply to: TO ALL CORMACKS! by David Cormack of 325

Hi David..I'm a Cormack from Dumbarton, Scotland..Grandfather from Wick..I was told by my father that the name came from the Norse.."cormaig" meaning footman or liveried servant. Given the close proximity of Wick,a
hotbed of Cormacks,to Scandinavia,and the numerous raids made by the Norsemen on Scotland in early history, the derivation could have some credibility..N.Z.attracts Scots probably due to like weather/landscape.
