Ah, ok
About the middle of the tenth century, Andrew became the patron saint of Scotland. Several legends state that the relics of Andrew were brought under supernatural guidance from Constantinople to the place where the modern town of St. Andrews stands (Pictish, Muckross; Gaelic, Cill Rìmhinn).
Interesting. The equivalent would be for a Spanish nationalist to call their child Santiago. Nobody would make the association, though. I wonder whether the name Jordi has the same connotation in Catalonia.
