"Scott. A byname for someone from Scotland. A person of enormous courage and powerful intelligence. He is capable of great deeds." I’ve always resented my name…my parents nearly called me Joshua and I always thought that Scott didn’t hold a candle up to the likes of a name like Joshua. Joshua’s are two a penny..not so many Scotts, however.
'Scott' is a great name, I am glad that I have it. You cannot shorten it, so people don't get confused over what to call you “Are you a Anthony or Ant?”. It also cannot be extended for an angry tone “SCOTTY GET BACK HERE NOW!” doesn't really work…And the fact that there are so few make it that more amazing when you meet someone else with that name. I know one other Scott and we became great friends due to someone calling out “Scott” and both of us turning around. Scott is unique, making it that much greater when you meet another. Every Tom, Dick and Harry is called Harry, Tom and Dick. I like to stand out.
