VEDILIMETO/ MAQI/ TOQITAQ

Translation

'of Fedelmid/Feidlimid son of Toicthech?'

Commentary

Compare Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny: VEDDELLEMETTO MUCI LOGIDDEAS AVVI MUNICCONA and CIIC 206. Kilcoolaght I, Co. Kerry: [C]EDATTOQ[A] MAQI TELEDMEV... (read: VEDELMET[TO]). 'The name of the commemorand is undoubtedly an early form of Fedelmid/Feidlimid, an i-stem derivative of the female name Fedelm (Latinised and Anglicised Fidelma). The third E of VEDDELLEMETTO, therefore, may be erroneous (as Fedelm, Fedelmid cannot come from *Vedelm-, which would have given *Feidelm, with lenited m) [unless] we may have to do here with a svarabhakti vowel' (McManus 1991, 75, n 6. 28)
