I need some help and don't know whom to speak to. I am trying to set up a
name for the society for creative anachronism.
I'd like it to be:
Sadb the Mad and Merry

*G* Quaint? Well I'd like to have the whole thing translated into Irish
Gaelic. Not too bad so far but the thing is it has to be period. Soooo... I
have to have the "Mad and Merry" Part translated into 11th century Irish
Gaelic.

I know, The society people had the weirdest ideas, But do you know anyone
that could help me in this? I love the name it is beautiful but... Well
according to our heraldry i have to have it ALL period. If you or someone
you know could help, or if you direct me to the right place... ? Thank you
so much for your time and if you can't help, oh well, I'll just have to drag
a bit of the mundane into my name. *G*

Thanks for your time.

I suggest Sadb Gealt Suaimhneach
I'm sure Gealt is period (Suibhne Gealt), but I'm not sure about a period translation of "Merry"

Sadb Gealt Meidhreach, mar sin!
Ach an mbaineann meidhreach leis an Ré cheart?
Beir bua
