- Comments and insights on the name Macallister: | Edit
I named 1st som Macallister Cameron, we call him Moo, his friends Mac, but most of the time his full name is used. Teachers n doctors etc call him Cameron Macallister, as Cameron is a popular first name and Macallister is a surname so gets mixed up. My Grandads dog Mac (pedigree name MacIver) had the sire (dogs dad) registered as Macallister, and when trying to think of a name, my batty old grandad said “why don’t you name him after Macs Dad...Macallister? Everyone laughed at him, we thought, ok then we’ll name him after Grandads dogs dad, it also goes nicely with our Scottish surname.. we stuck with theme for 2nd son, he’s Fergus, named after kids book ‘Fergus the Farmyard dog.
