The Baird name in Scotland may have come from the word "bard" or as the surname of a Norman family that arrived in England with William the Conqueror in 1066. Old spellings of the name were Bard, Barde, Beard, Byrd, and Bayard. Only at the end of the 16th century did it become Baird. Reference also this article by Hamish L. Baird
