Historically, the given name Somerled should be pronouced: "So-airley or Sorley", not "Summer-lead" -- just FYI (for my fellow purists). ;0).

What a lovely name. I love how it contains "summer" in it's pronunciation. It's unusual and unique (well, at least it is to me, this is the first time I've come across this name).

I love this name. It has lots of history, it's easy to pronounce and on top of it all it has an awesome meaning. 'Summer traveller' seems very poetic to me, for some reason.

The word "traveller" is not spelled correctly, there is only one L in the word.

To the above poster, "traveller", with two Ls, is a correct spelling. It's the British English spelling of the word.

The name of a main character in Juliet Marillier's novel Wolfskin. It's an excellent book, and the names are really great.
