You are mistaken. In Britain, CAMDEN cannot be "English" nor Scottish "Gaelic" Its origin predates by at least three centuries the invasion of Southern Britain by German Saxons and Northern Britain by Scots from Ireland CAMBOGLANNO was recorded in the Second Century as the name of the Roman Fort at Castlesteads, which is on the bank of the river Lowther Brito-Celtic CAMBO "curved, crooked meandering" ( > Welsh CAM ) plus Brito-Celtic GLANNO "river bank" (> Welsh GLAN) DENU "valley" is an obsolete Anglo-Saxon word meaning "valley" CAMDEN is thus a hybrid Anglo-Welsh name meaning "curved valley" But compare CAMBOURNE in Cornwall where Anglo-Saxon BOURNE "river" replaced Cornish-Welsh BRON "hill" It is possible (but unproven) that Anglo-Saxon DENU "valley" replaced Brito-Celtic DUNO "hill, hill-fort" (or Welsh DIN "fort") Either way, the name is Celtic not Germanic and Welsh not Gaelic.
