Meaning & History
A combination honoring Irish deities Aodh and Lugh. Aodh is often referred to as a "god of the underworld," although this is likely influenced by Christian interpretation. He and his siblings were turned into swans by their stepmother, Aoife. Lugh was a deity famed for being skilled in many disciplines, including being a poet, smith, swordsman, harpist, historian, craftsman, historian, and warrior. He is known by the epithets Lámfada ("of the long arm"), Ildánach ("skilled in many arts"), Macnia ("youthful hero"), and Lonnbéimnech "fierce striker"), among others.
