Blar Nam Feinne[edit]

Just wondering if anyone can comment on this RCAHMS report on Blar Nam Feinne just west of Inverness (grid reference NH595433, which reports a local tradition of a battle there between "King Malcolm" and Thorfinn in the early 11th century. Reports seem to vary between Malcolm winning to dying. :-))) Le Deluge (talk) 17:54, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Silly naming convention[edit]

In English, Malcolm is the name which is almost always used to refer to this monarch. While foreign versions of the name can and should be mentioned for informational purposes, his common English name should be used in English wikipedia since it is much more readable.

Agreed - use common English name on English wikipedia. Greenshed (talk) 01:25, 25 November 2010 (UTC)


This 'On this day' entry: 'After Malcolm II of Scotland died at Glamis, Duncan, the son of his second daughter, instead of Macbeth, the son of his eldest daughter, inherited the throne to become the King of Scots' seems to conflict with this part of the article : 'It is possible that a third daughter of Máel Coluim married Findláech mac Ruaidrí and that Mac Bethad was thus his grandson, but this rests on relatively weak evidence.' Either it was his second or his third daughter who might have been the mother of the person who would be called by the Anglicized name MacBeth. Can anyone bring a little more clarity to this?
