Mouth of Leith?
It has always puzzled me as to the reason Inverleith is so-called, when it is well over 2 km from the mouth of the Water of Leith. Although inbhir is usually applied to places at the mouth of a river, more widely it has the meaning of confluence, so not necessarily the mouth. I'm not aware of another body of water joining the Water of Leith at Inverleith and there's nothing visible on the OS map, but is there possibly something small or now subterranean? What's more, why a Gaelic name in the Lothians where placenames would be much more likely to be Brythonic or Anglic? Mutt Lunker (talk) 21:56, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
- Not so, they are in the minority, but this article also answers my question as to why there are some. Mutt Lunker (talk) 22:40, 7 August 2010 (UTC)
I read recently that in Lothian they are in the majority. Certainly East Lothian has names that indicate a Gaelic presence early on. Its annoying because Ill have to find the article again, but it had a comparative list of Old Welsh names and Gaelic names and the Gaelic list was larger.Seamusalba (talk) 13:15, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
