I think it is safe to assume that the meaning of the name Minnaloushe is derived from Yeats' poem. I too would like to know the origin of the name. I wonder if it's a cat he had or knew and I also wonder if there is some foundation in the Celtic language that Yeats was intending to imbed in the poem through the name. Any Yeats scholars out there with information on this?
