I think the hard-c/soft-c thing comes from outside America -- the
Glasgow Celtic Football Club (God love them) pronounce *their* name with
an "s" sound as well. Some elderly people, including some Gaelic
speakers when they're speaking English, still pronounce it this way
habitually. But in Gaelic itself there's no soft "c", as you mention.

I want to thank you once again for educating me. I did, however, see that you
spelled my name with an h in it. In an earlier post, I learned that Brian
could be spelled Briain in Irish Gaelic (there was some disagreement, though,
among other posters). My question to you is: Is the addition of an h meant to
be the Scots Gaelic spelling?
Brian (or Briain, or Bhriain)
