I'm looking for help translating "two valleys" into Irish. This is for a friend who happens to have first & middle names which both (oddly enough) mean "valley" or "from the valley."
I'd like to give him a nickname of sorts, so if there's a way of translating this into one word, or into some form that sounds like a name, I'd be very grateful to learn it.
Hopefully what I've said here makes sense; if not, please let me know, and I'll try to re-phrase.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer me.

The Two Valleys:
An Dá Ghleann
The Man of the Two Valleys:
Fear an Dá Ghleann. ( I think! )

You may have to come up with another one there. I'll bet your friend has had people calling him "Glennie" (if I'm right about one of his names) since he was very little.
Gleannta, when spoken quickly will sound real close to 'glahnee' or 'glownee'.

Don't you just love pressumptions!
As for "Gleannta", in my accent in anyway, it's not gonna become "Glahnee" nor "Glownee" - that T isn't going anywhere.
