    the town of Mílis
    Mílis — ainm pearsanta agus sloinne (< Miles na nAngla-Normannach)

    D’fhéadfadh ainm pearsanta nó sloinne a bheith i gceist le Mílis (< Miles). B’fhéidir go gcuireann 1655 ‘Ballguillyshy’ [leg. Ballyvillyshy] agus 1660c ‘Ballynclishy’ [leg. Ballyvilishy] an fhoirm mhalartach Baile an Mhílisigh “the town of An Míliseach (person surnamed Miles)” in úil.
