Its better when you realise the language is still a spoken live language. Though sad to think how much we have lost.

My favourite is in things like place names "Dublin - Dubh Linn - the black pool - where the river Poddle meets the river Liffey giving a deep water at the site of the citys establishment.

In Scotland they have the Cairngorm mountains or "the blue stone mountains"

Such a descriptive way of things

Derry - Doire - The Oak tree, Belfast - Beal Feirste - mouth of the river ......and on the language goes - or went
