The Scottish Gaelic form of the given name is Dùbhghlas [ˈt̪uːl̪ˠəs̪]; the Irish-language forms are Dúghlas and Dubhghlas, which are pronounced [ˈd̪ˠuːɣlˠəsˠ]. According to George Fraser Black, in southern Argyllshire the surname is an Anglicised form of the surnames MacLucas, MacLugash (which are derived from the Gaelic Mac Lùcais).

I have yet to determine if the Jordanian/Palestinian family Daghlas, or Daghles, is a Douglas family.

Some of the Scotti/Scotto families of Italy claim Douglas ancestry, and, indeed, refer to themselves a Douglas-Scotti, etc.

Dougla people (plural Douglas) are Caribbean people who are of mixed African and Indian descent. The word Dougla (also Dugla or Dogla) is used primarily in Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname, Guyana, and Jamaica.

The word Dougla originated from doogala *, which is a Caribbean Hindustani word that may mean "many", "much" or "a mix". Some of the connotations of the word such as bastard, illegitimate and son of a whore are secondary and limited to sections of North India where the term may have originated. Originally, in the West Indies the word was only used for Afro-Indo mixed race, despite its origin as a word used to describe inter-caste mixing.
