GUEST,Reiver 2 Gaelic phrase (31) Gaelic phrase 19 Aug 03

I haven't visited the Mudcat for a long time, but thought someone might be able to provide some information. This isn't really a music question but an acquaintance of mine says a friend of hers used to call her his "moe-doon" (she says that's what it sounded like) and she's pretty sure it was Irish or Scottish gaelic. She's curious to know what it meant (and wants to know regardless of whether it was complimentary or not!). It doesn't ring a bell with me, but I thought immediately of the Mudcat and figured there might be someone here who could decipher what this phrase might have been. It was probably a term of endearment of some kind, but the closest I can come is my Scottish glossary mentions dou or doo as meaning "dove". That's a wild guess on my part. Any thoughts out there?
