Well Bette. You have all these wonderful names, it's easy for you to talk!
If I can't get a Gaelic form of "Pamela" I'd rather "invent" something else.
But I noticed that lovely list posted earlier about the colours of the wind.
and it has:
Ala/swan (for craft or skill, also TROUT or TWINKLING).
Dubh fhocal - enigma
Geal - bright
Since my Ish self spends part of her time as a trout, and part of her time
as a glimmering girl -- I should be able to get a name out of THESE . . .
Any help from Gaelic speakers?
Pamela (neglected by Maqqi so far!)
