Current Clan Ranald Chief Profile

The current chief is Ranald Macdonald. He has two successors in his oldest son Ranald Macdonald, and his son in turn, Ranald Macdonald. Can you see a theme!! To avoid confusion, at the games we refer to Ranald senior, as … Ranald senior!; Ranald younger as Ranald Òg (young Ranald), and; Ranald, 3rd in line as Ranald Òg Òige (younger young Ranald). ‘Òg’ is the Gàidhlig word for ‘young’. There is a tradition of tracing one’s lineage by tracing the name of the father in line backwards, in many communities, and the Highlands and Gàidhlig cultures are no different. So Ranald Òg Òige would be known as Ranald, mac Ranald, mhic Ranald (Ranald, son of Ranald, son of Ranald). ‘Mhic’ is used for every subsequent generation after the current youngest father.
