ABSTRACT
The article examines some Scottish names, including Vacomagi, Boresti, Iudanbyrig, Aberlessic and Dubuice. The Vacomagi were a people of North Britain and whose location and name have been problematic. It investigates what conclusions proposed Vocomiugi for 'Vacomagi' suggest. It discusses an emendation to Boresti in Tacitus and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for 952 and Stirling. It reflects on the origin of the name Aberlessic. It cites six Gaelic entries that were made in the ninth-century Book of Deer.
