funny name meaning once you know irish (a little bit)
sean- old sean bean - old woman
kinda funny isn't it?:
Ah, well. The lenition is about as much difference as the word order really. Handy to know that about Irish compound words. Seanbhean reminds me of Agbalagba. It's a Yoruba word that my nephews' dad calls them. It literally means old man but you call anyone being cantankerous it.
Ah. OK. Thanks for keeping me in the loop. Good that you are keeping up with your Irish. By the way, I never really looked at your name before. It's pretty cool, mazeltov (I'm going to be very surprised if you're not Jewish with a name like that). Have you traced any relation to Allen?
Sorry I didn't get back to you. I read the notification for this and thought I'd answer later but I forgot. I don't know if maybe you're too young to have heard of him or if you're just sick of people brining it up but Allen Ginsberg was the figurehead of the Beat Generation's poetry movement back in 1950s America. Now that I've looked it up I've noticed he spelt his name differently from you so he's probably not a relation.
