How would you translate something like, "To bare the soul" or "soul-baring"? I thank all of you in advance for any help you could give me (and for all the help you've already given me!)

I tried figuring it out myself. Would this be correct?

Nocht na Aham

Or maybe Nocht an Aham? I'm not even certain if I'm close.

"An t-anam a nochtadh" for the first one or "Nochtadh anama" for the second.

Oh, you are a life saver! I'm so glad you answered me! I believe I prefer Nochtadh anama, but could you tell me how to say it aloud? I will also surf around online and see if I can find the pronounciation anywhere. Thanks!

Is this right:

Nokh-tuh Ah-nuhm-ah (uh?) (still not sure where to stress)

And would Gealach be "Gyal-uckh"?

Correct. The emphasis is on the first syllable of each word for each of these words.
