Girl originally from a Scottish island? (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

fiona

Here is my best explanation:

'girl' is the definition.

'originally from a scottish island?' is the subsidiary indication.

'originally' says to take the initial letters.

'a scottish island?' becomes 'iona' (I've seen this before**).

The first letter of 'from' is 'f'.

'f'+'iona'='fiona'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for fiona that I've seen before include "Girl's name, meaning fair in Gaelic", "Girl's name (not Flora)", "Girl" and "Name".)
