Norman, Š was an older twin-brother of William, but this must be wrong, for Norman was old enough in 1428 to lead the Clan in battle, and so must have been considerably older than his brother, William, who was born c. 1415. He was probably an illegitimate son of Iain Borb. He was killed in 1429. His posthumous son, John, was progenitor of the MacLeods of Waternish. Iain Borb left two daughters, who were born in wedlock.

He was married to a daughter of Chisholm of Strathglass, and by her had a son, John.
