Clan/Family Category

I looked in the Scottish Register of Tartans and found Stirling of Keir tartan to be categorized clan/family. I know this may sound as a stupid question, but would I be committing a social faux pas by wearing a familial kilt even though my surname is not Stirling? My great grandmother's maiden name was Starling and I have traced her ancestry to the Stirlings of Keir in Scotland. I thought about wearing a kilt in clan colors.
