The origins of the male line ancestors of the Campbells are Celtic, likely from the Britonic Celts based upon Alcluit, later known as Dun Bretan and now spelt Dumbarton, on the Clyde. The name Campbell comes from the Gaelic "Caim beul" (pronounced cam bel as in cam shaft), meaning curved mouth. The homeland of the Campbells since the twelve hundreds has been Argyll.
From the 13th century onwards the Campbell Lordship in Argyll was on freshwater Loch Awe, sometimes written Lochawe, (pronounced Loch AWE, as in awesome). The early followers of the Campbell ancestors on Lochawe were the kin of their maternal ancestor Eva, heiress of the O' Duibhne (pronounced oh-DOON-yea). In Gaelic the collective name for the Campbell kin was not Clan Campbell but O' Duibhne. The early Campbell chiefs became the knights of Lochawe. The castle of the early Chiefs was at Innis Chonnel (pronounced Insh CONul) in an island in Lochawe.
