Our Surname Origins
The GUTHRIE surname originated over 700 years ago in Scotland. It may have stemmed from the name of the Barony of Guthrie, and the landed gentry of that time. Perhaps a Scandinavian Prince by the name of Guthrum deserves the credit for the name, so one theory goes. Or was it just an old wives' tale about a fisherman instructing his wife to "gut three" fish for the king? Your DNA can tell you if your ethnic makeup is Celtic, Scandinavian, or has other ancestral origins.
