Derivation

"Campbell" is the family name of the hereditary Dukes of Argyll, dating from 1445. It is commonly said to have been derived from

the Scots Gaelic "Caimbeul" from "Cam" (Crooked) and "Beul" (mouth) meaning "Crooked or wry mouth," used to describe a man whose mouth inclined a little on one side, though some hold that it developed from
the Gaelic "Mac Cathmhaoil" meaning son of the battle chieftain

and others note that it is sometimes erroneously thought to be derived from

from the Norman-French "de Campobello" i.e., "of the beautiful plain".

Ireland Roots traces its usage to a by-name for Duncan le Cambell with the meaning of "Duncan known as Crooked Mouth", citing a 1390 charter for Duncan, earl of Levenax, in which he apparently styled himself as styled himself as "Duncan le Cambell". The note, however, other occurrences of the surname from as early as 1263, when "Gillespic Cambel is listed in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland.
