geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek

I just found out what the naming convention for Irish warships is.

Geek! Geek! Geek!

Oh, wow, that makes me so very, very happy.

But what, no Scathac? No Mebd?

Don't make me fire off a letter....

Ah, but one of the first ships was named Maev (a variant of Medh). Unless my memory is failing. It might be. I hate lupus.

Coolness. All from the White & Red Branch cycles, at least so far, from what I can tell.

I'm amused that they use "both" names of Cuchulain's wife: Aoife, and the later name, Emer.
Oh, thank you for finding that.
BTW -- at least in O'Donovan's corner of the Ill Met in Amber Navy, ships are named after people who have Irish tunes named after them... :)
