Seumas name meaning:

The name Seumas is a traditional Scottish Gaelic variant of the name James. The name James itself is of Hebrew origin, derived from Jacob, which means "supplanter" or "holder of the heel." Seumas, pronounced as "SHAY-mus," carries the same lineage and meaning but is distinctively marked by its Gaelic heritage, offering a nod to Scotland's rich linguistic and cultural history.

Seumas, like its counterpart James, is a name that has been borne by kings, writers, and notable figures throughout history, thus carrying a sense of nobility and classic timelessness. The name's Gaelic roots make it particularly appealing to those with Scottish ancestry or those who are drawn to Celtic names. It evokes an image of someone who is both connected to tradition and possesses a unique identity, reflecting the enduring legacy of Gaelic culture.
