Where Did the name scotch bonnet come from?

The Scotch Bonnet supposedly comes from the Tam O Shanter. But I wonder whether a Scottish woman in the Caribbean, or more likely a soldier. Wherever, some old market lady saw the hat and exclaimed “that looks just like my peppers” and off we go into the present and the wonderful fragrant scotch bonnet peppers we use exclusively in our Hot Sauce. We have tried so many other peppers and just cannot get the flavour we want from any other.
