Fergus is a masculine name with a strong heritage and even stronger qualities. Forged from the Scottish Gaelic Fearghas_,_ Fergus is long celebrated as meaning "highest choice" and considered one who embodies the height of courage within Celtic lore. Such adulations are only cemented by the legendary king, Fergus Mór mac Eirc, who set sail from the Irish coast and founded the ancient kingdom of Dál Riata—now Argyll in Scotland.
