Dow, Dove—These two names are anglicised forms of McCalman, and adopted by a branch of that sept which was descended from Columan, the third son of the 7th Lord of Buchanan in Stirling Co., the name McColman being derived from Colm, a dove, hence the anglicisation of above names (Mac Calmáin). McCalmont is a form.
