Barra vs Colonsay by Charlynn Helms

It was suggested (in the clan history) that certain first names were used exclusively by the Barra MacNeil's and others only by the Colonsay MacNeil's. Further examples given in the article have led me to believe that the name Archibald belonged to the Colonsay clan.

Does anyone know the truth of this matter?

This information may be helpful in leading my research in the right direction (stuck in 1792 with Archibald born to unknown parents in the US - probably in North Carolina)
