I note the name Iye in the last message. I have come across the same forename in my own researches around Durness but been informed by Hebridean Gaelic speakers that no such name is known to them. (They seem particularly unhappy because there is no letter "y" in present day Gaelic usage). I think this must be an example of Sutherland Gaelic being different. Can anyone enlighten me as to what Iye means, or its present-day equivalent?
