Good morning!

While I am newly registered to your forum and want to thank everyone for the great ideas you all have provided me over the years simply by using the search feature as a
lurker ;-) I love to use Gaelic names and terms to register my Irish Wolfhound puppies. I have a sweet female puppy I am looking to register with the kennel club here and found a word, "sceitimini" that was defined on a list of Irish words as follows: "Sceitimíní (SKETCH-a-meeny) – Excited feelings, fits of rapturous excitement BUBBLING JOY If you are really excited in Irish, you say that these are on you!" I am hoping a few of you might have time to verify the definition as some other place gave it a more... erotic? definition which wouldn't be suitable at all. The puppy's call name is "Bliss" so if there is another equally or even more beautiful word that better suits, I would love to hear suggestions.

I think most people would take it to mean excitement in the joyful or anticipatory sense. I'm sure it can probably be used in an erotic context in the same way as the word "excitement" can be in English, but it isn't what first comes to mind for me when I hear sceitimíní.
