the essential Gaelic-English dictionary spells aimearaga ameireaga


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FiferWD

The Learn Gaelic Dictionary defines "Aimearaga" as "American". And the continent of America as "Aimeireagaidh". The preposition from, à, is defined as "out (of), which suggests tha "à Aimeireagaidh" should be the correct usage here. What word should be used for United States of America?

At first I thought she said "Tha i a Aimearaga" after the app telling me twice I was typing engish and listening 5+ times I realized that she might be saying Iain. :/
