This name is recorded earlier than Clauchen (Scots ‘a hamlet, village, gen. containing a church’). However, I presume it is derived from that name rather than representing an independent formation.

This entry is still in draft and has yet to be proofed. There are links to the sources of historical forms of the name, where spellings can be checked.
