What is wrong with Dun Deagh?

It’s an accepted answer, was it rejected?

I've seen both spellings. What's the difference? What do the good people of Dundee think about it? (I haven't been there for a while so I don't know what's on the road signs.)

As an adopted Dundonian, I can honestly say the only place I've ever seen Dùn Deagh is on the sign outside the train station. Inexplicably though, the sign on the platform says Dùn Dè, so it seems even ScotRail themselves are unsure. I'd personally stick with Dùn Dè, as it's probably the more common of the two.
