<<There are, however, Gaulish personal names like Magounus and Magunia, which

seems to parallel the divine name Mogounos (linked to Grannus in CIL 13,

5315, a variant of Mogons. The name may perhpas also be realted to the Irish

Maghain (*Magonia), a variant of Mugain (*Magunia), wife of Conchobar. D. E.

Evans allows the possibility that the names in Mog- may stem from a variant

form of Mag- "youth/servant."


Wasn't one of Patrick's given names _Magonius_?
