Interesting that in Scots we would say Wheesht!

Yes the Scots version of "Silence of the Lambs" was "Wheesht Ewes"

I believe that's a derivation.

Much like whisky is an Anglicisation of uisge.

What's the difference between Hush! and Quiet! ?

No difference, I've added it.

Is this not the same as "hold your wheesht!"? The first time I answered this I said wheesht and it marked that wrong. I went along but I am pretty sure it is the same as I heard growing up "hold yer wheesht"!

Och! Haud yer wheesht!
