Interesting reading on the naming of Kinghorn. In my husband's family's records, we have it as a cross between "Kean of Kin" (the lord of the land) and "gorn", which means "green."
I also have reference to the Castle of Glammis, which was granted by Robert II as a marriage portion with his daughter, Janet, to Sir John Lyon, whose successors were invested by James VI with the title of "Earle of Kinghorne" (reign of Charles II) which was later merged with the "Earl of Strathmore" title.
