Notes on Gaelic Title

Iomarbhàigh Mhic Leòid Iomarbhadh Mhicleoid / MacLeod’s Controversy KB. Conventionally ‘MacLeod’s Controversy’. For iomarbhadh Dwelly gives a range of meanings such as ‘struggle/contention’, but he also mentions iomramh, ‘rowing’, which is really a different word though pronounced almost identically (see Port Iomramh Mhic Leòid [231]).
