Explanatory note

  • Gaeilge

    the town of —

    Tá an fhianaise stairiúil réasúnta leanúnach agus is réiteach fuaime é thormóir leis na foirmeacha béarlaithe. Luífeadh sé le réasún gur ainm pearsanta a bheadh ann, ach mar sin féin ní léir a bhunús; níl *Tormór le fáil sna ginealaigh. D’fhéadfadh sé gur ainm nó ainmfhocal eile a bhí ann ó cheart, a ndearnadh athshamhlú air roimh an 16ú haois.

    Cf. bf, par Cill Tormóir (#1411452) i nGaillimh (‘Tormór’s church’ an míniú in FSÁG s.n. Ceall Tormóir).
