Someone doesn't know how to use the space bar? Whats with all the _? I doubt his name could mean Boy Ghillie because Dubh means black, Boy Ghillie, according to Ghillie, would mean boy boy. If you want to get more descriptive, which you probably don't cause this poor article is rotten, making my Gaelic ancestors spin in their graves, maybe consider what kind of a boy ghillie means, something like wild or hunting boy, page boy, something like that. All I've got on Dark Boy is from old RPG books, kinda a poor man's Cernunnos. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.137.207.191 (talk) 10:13, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Wait, whats with the supposition, we know what his name means the damn poem thing says, Dark Servent. Sleep soon, but first burn original research. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.137.207.191 (talk) 10:20, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

This must be an older discussion. Gille Dubh means the black or dark lad or servant. (Fr. Gaelic "Gille" deriving from IR. giolla, servant or lad and "Dubh" - black), which, when applied to a person, usually meaning dark-hued or black or dark-haired Seamus45 (talk) 22:09, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
