Title: A question for Gaelic speakers
Posted by: Andrew Lancaster

Thanks for that Rob. I think studying place names is certainly worth trying. As you may have guessed though, my question was very specific, because I am wondering what sort of etymology could have caused a family on the edge of the gaelic speaking highlands to have a name pronounced "Livietch". While it obviously could have come from a pronounciation like modern Livingstone, but what other options are available.

Apart from the general question of whether anyone can think of any answer. A specific new question comes from your reply. Would anyone know how the mentioned word was pronounced in very old gaelic, or in Perthshire gaelic?

Best Regards
Andrew
