My mother's maiden name was Isobel Miscampbell thus my interst in the name. I remember many years ago doing some research and getting some information regarding the history of that name. It was perhaps less flattering than the reason jean Wilkinson has, but certainly no less interesting or romantic. The story I was given was that, at a distant period in history, it was common that when an unmarried girl gave birth the child's surname would be given as Mis plus his mother's surname, thus Miscampbell had sprung from Campbell. There are quite a few surnames beginning with Mis.
