K’:l’ nə n’e:r ‘Cella Lachrimarum’ Éideihmne mhór i dtaobh ceartfhuirme agus céille na hainme seo i leith an fhocail deiridh ann. Deir malairt daoine: Cill na naor Cill na néan Cill na naon agus ag beagán – Cill na néar a fhusacht ‘n’ agus ‘r’ a chur i n-ionad a chéile fá deara cuid den mhearbhall agus a fhusacht ‘n’ caol a rádh i n-ionad ‘n’ leathan agus vice versa.

Kyllnanaegan
It appears as Kyllmeyneayn or perhaps Kyllnayneayn in C.P.L., v. 153, where we learn that it was impropriate to the priory of Killaha (cf. no. 23). In nos. 56 and 108 the spelling is Kilmoneayn and Kyllmaneayn. These various spellings are worthy of note because the civil parish which is marked on the O.S. map is now known as Kilnanare, which some think is a corruption of of Cill-na-naon for an older form Cill-na-nAedhán.
