Origin of the name CHASE Back

Origin

KINGHORN : Local. A borough in Fifeshire, Scotland. The name is derived from the Gaelic Cean-gorn or gorm, the blue head, from the adjoining promontory. It is fancifully suggested by one writer that as the Scottish kings long had a residence in the neighborhood, the name may have been suggested by the frequent winding of the king's horn when he sallied out to the chase in this neighborhood.
