Origen: Escocés. The ancient Scottish name Galbraith is carried by the descendents of the Pictish people. It was a name for a person who came from Briton. The surname Galbraith comes from the Gaelic words gall, which means stranger, and Bhreathnach, which means Briton. This surname was given to those who were described as the strangers from Briton. Galbraith is therefore a nickname surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. Members of the Galbraith family settled in Angus, prior to the Norman invasion of England, in 1066.
Variantes: Galbraith, Galbreath, Galbreith, Galbreth, Galbrith, Galberth y otros.
