Reply to: Aoide is a Greek name, not Irish by Lumia
I was basing my response on the (perhaps optimistic) premise that there can only be so many ways to mangle a nightmarish vowel string like "aoi" within the Indo-European language family. Could be wrong.

It's safe to assume that most Irish spelling was probably concocted late at night in a haze of unfiltered cigarettes, grain alcohol, and chronic depression, but what were the GREEKS thinking? If Pavlos is any example, they were probably just messin with our heads...
