Keith is an old Scottish name. Originally it was a surname (and sometimes still is, as in Penelope Keith.) It became an aristocratic surname, as there were some wealthy families in Scotland with this name, especially the Earls Marischal from the 15th to the 17th century. In fact there is still a Clan Keith today, headed by the 14th Earl of Kintore, with a family seat in Aberdeenshire.

The original Keiths came from an area in East Lothian in the north of Scotland, and the name may come from an old Celtic word for wood.

From the 19th century onwards Keith has often been given to boys as a first or Christian name, all over Britain and other English-speaking countries. The same has happened with other old Scottish surnames like Bruce and Douglas.
