Iain or John is not as common as Duncan Donald Farquar or Alexander ( Alastair) amongst the MacRaes. Farquhar was the name of one of the best known worthies of the clan The Rev Farquar born 1580 an M A of Edinburgh Univ and Vicar of Kintail & Constable of Eilean Donan castle. Kintail MacRaes have an excellent crib to their geneology in the Rev Alexander MACRAE's History of the Clan MacRae
