No changes.

Originally returned on the September 2019 Outlands LoI

<Brigid> - AStG Report 1716 - Saint Brigid was venerated throughout the Gaelic world. Apnd-H Doc Brigid is a feminine given name documentable as a Saint's name from Catholic Encyclopedia Online., which references her relics being (re)discovered and venerated in 1185 as well as her inclusion in the Stowe Missal of the 8th or 9th century. Spellings of the name from the Annals Index include forms with -t- and -d-: sancte Brigide/sancte Brigite. It also includes a form with -t: S. Brighit. These suggest an early Brigid. This is in Index of Names in Irish Annals: Feminine Given Names by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien)

Eogain na h-oitreach is listed on page 474 of Celtic Scotland, a history of Ancient Alban by William Forbes Skene. It is also referenced with the spelling requested in Clan Ewen: Some Records of its History page 1 (pg 9 in the PDF) available at

The construction [single given name] inghean Uí [eponymous clan ancestor's name in genitive case and lenited] is documented from "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names" by Sharon Krossa
