    the town of Ó Mornáin
    Ó Mornáin — gaelú déanach ar an sloinne Angla-Normannach Mar(i)ner
    Is struchtúr an-chomónta i gCo. na Mí é an téarma lonnaíochta Angla-Normannach -tún (-town ní ba dhéanaí) á cháiliú le hainm pearsanta nó le sloinne. Is é an focal Gaeilge a fhreagraíonn do -town i logainmeacha den chineál sin ná baile, agus rinneadh roinnt mhaith de na logainmneacha Béarla seo a ghaelú ar an múnla baile + ainm. Féach na tagairtí stairiúla seo a leanas: ‘villa Roberti Marinerii’ (1211), ‘Robertus le Mariner in villa de Mariners’ (1234), ‘Marinerston’ (1343), ‘Mornanston’ (1552), ‘Mornanton or Marinerston’ (1604), ‘Morningtown’ (1777), cuan Bhail’ Uí Mhórnan LS. Uí Ghealacáin in Ollscoil Dhún Éideann (‘Iomáin na Bóinne’), Baile Mhornan Ainmleabhar, scríofa le peann luaidhe (1836)
