Ruth,

As I stated over two years ago on this board, there is no connection between the English surname Wilkinson and the Gaelic Clann Dhòmhnuill/MacDonalds.

Nor is there some sort of "official sept list" as you suggest. However, there are many lists of surnames created by tartan product makers purporting to show a wide variety of surnames connected with various clans, regardless of historical or present-day reality. Their agenda is to maximise profit, not illuminate the intricacies of Gaeldom.

Clann Dhòmhnuill
