"Sporran" is the Gaelic word for a pouch or a purse. The earliest styles were simple leather bags worn from the belt. The origin of the sporran goes hand in hand with the traditional highland kilt. Since the attire didn't come with the convenience of pockets, a leather pouch became a useful means of keeping together all those valuable items such as money, food, musket balls and the teeth of any unsuspecting rival clansmen!
