  • Gaelic for "grandfather"?

    First posted by Morrison -14 July 2000
    ---------------------------------------------
    As the birth of my first grandchild nears, my daughter asked me what the scottish word for grandfather was. I found seanair in the dictionary, literally "old Father", but I was wondering what term was commonly used by Gaelic speakers. Any out there? Anyone know?

      Seanair is what I called my grandfather, even though there wasn't a lot of Gaelic still spoken in the family, and none in my generation. I thought it was a really nice term, good luck with it.

        Caleb is now almost 6 Months old, and a better, more gorgeous child you couldn't find.
        Sorry Bingo, I didn't recognize you on the Grandmother board.
        You see I haven't wasted what I learned.
