Again the Gaelic has changed the spelling of Niall, so frustrating as impossible to correctly get the right answer..

a Nèill is the vocative – the form used to directly address a person – of Niall. Did you read the tips and notes? It’s explained in the Names skill. The tips and notes are available in the web browser version on Duolingo (unfortunately not on the mobile app). You can also access them on the duome.eu website.

Is nèil sometimes niall and sometimes neil?

It is explained in the comment just above in this discussion.

I’ll copy it here again:
