Notes on Gaelic Titles

A’ Mhil Bhraonach Vuile Vrionich C2; A Bheel Bronach Far am ’t-ainach Charly Stewart K3; A Mheel Bhraonach K3 index; A Mheil Baronnach KK; …Bhraonach / Fair Honey KK index. The modern name is ‘Fair Honey’ but the words ‘are you sad’ were noted by J. MacDougall Gillies in 1884 (PS Book 9, p. 263), presumably from reading the name as A’ bheil thu brònach?
