Some data I came across that may be of interest :

The name Duthie may commemorate St. Dubhthach of Tain. It is a shortened Anglicisation of MacGille Dubhthaigh, “son of the servant of Dubhthach.” The Gaelic name of Tain is Baile Dhubhthaich, “Dubhthach’s town”. There are some early mentions of the name Duthie – there was a Marjory Duthe (without the “i”) in Holme, Orkney in 1492; seven Duthie’s are recorded in Dunblane and its neighbourhood from 1598; there was a Patrick Duthie in Insches, parish of Glenbervie in 1612, a David Duthie appears in Ballbrogie, Dunkeld in 1744 and Alexander Duthie was a planter in Jamaica in 1769. It is still a very North-East of Scotland name today. Another name in the area is Arduthie.
