The history of Clan MacAlpine is full of doubts, confusion and the family tree is unverified. It is also naive that the surname which is publicly inherited from Alpin, father of Kenneth MacAlpin has never had a Chief of Names and Arms. In fact no genealogies can be related back to Alpin, though tall claims of seven famous Clans to linked with him exists.The name Alpín is likely Pictish one, possibly derived from the Anglo-Saxon name Ælfwine. The patronymic Mac Echdach indicates son of Eochaid or Eochu.Sadly, Alpin is not listed in the 11th Century Duan Albanach (Song of the Scots) or the various Irish Annals, and there is no real evidence that he was a king in Dál Riata or that his father was Eochaid mac Áeda Find, who may be spurious in any case. In any case, the MacAlpine name is so ancient and will have arisen when the clan system was still developing, says Dr.Bruce Durie.
