This name is said to mean "son of Life" and is derived from the Gaelic MacBheathain. In the 16th and 17th centuries two families of the name practised medicine in the Highlands, and it is claimed their name was later changed to Beaton. MacBeth, King of Scotland, came to the throne in 1040 and ruled for 16 years. Shakespeare in his play "MacBeth", attributes the murder of King Duncan to MacBeth and his Queen. MacBeth was killed at Lumphanan in 1056 and his body was taken to Iona for burial.
