I was trying — unsuccessfully — to find the etymology of Pencaitland, with some interrogation about the unusual form of this Goidelic (not Brittonic) name, with pen- as a prefix. Does it have anything to do with the world pen (head, etc.) and the surname Caitlín (Kathleen, Catherine and so on)? If so, how could these words be related together? Do you know more?
Whatever your answer, many thanks forward. Have a nice day! ✓ Kanġi Oĥanko (talk) 11:11, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
