so the upshot is that there are no clear attestations pre Middle Irish? And there's nothing stopping one being outrageous and suggesting a straight borrowing of a Norse figure in a medieval Hiberno-Norse environment? And the variation in vowels just perhaps representing something epenthetic?

The form and the area would fit; more evidence from other good Celtic
countries, however, would be desirable.

Is "Balorice" a nominative? The form is too unclear for me to make
anything of it.

I have written an article about Ig and surroundings which is to
appear almost every day now in a Festschrift for Erzsébet Jerem, and
I am currently writing a second one for the proceedings of a workshop
last September in Cambridge. In these papers I argue that Ig probably
is a kind of linguistic isolate, and that we must be very careful
about the allegedly Celtic names from there. I regard "Bolerianus" as
one of those names specific to Ig, which have no outside connection.
