Angus is a masculine given name in English, originating from Scotland and Ireland. It is an Anglicised form of the Scottish Gaelic and Irish Aonghas, which is composed of Celtic elements meaning "one" and "choice". The name Angus has a rich history, particularly in Scotland and Ireland, where it has been popular for a long time. King Angus MacFergus, a Pictish king in the 8th century, was one of the notable persons in Scottish history with this name, and the Scottish county of Angus was named after him. In Irish mythology, Aonghus was the deity of love and youth. The name Angus has a few variations and pet forms, such as Angie, a pet form of Angus, pronounced "an-ghee," which represents the Scottish Gaelic Angaidh, and Gus, a short form of the given name Angus, which may be lengthened to Gussie. The feminine form of Angus is Angusina. Although the name Angus is primarily of Scottish and Irish origin, there are other theories about its etymology, with some sources suggesting it may have come from the Latin name Annegus, meaning 'excellent crop,' or from the Old Norse name Agmundr, meaning 'awe-inspiring protection'.
