Beautiful work. I am amazed at the scholarship here sometimes.
For what it's worth, I can also confirm these translations.

Gaiscíoch, iníon Dé
Warrior, [and a] daughter of God

Iníon ghaisciúil Dé
"warrior daughter" of God
In this case, the adjective could be read as meaning "valiant" or "warlike", rather than "warrior-ish"

Modelling from dochtúir mná and leanbh iníne "female child", I think "warrior daughter" can be expressed as gaiscíoch iníne.

I propose Gaiscíoch Iníne Dé for ""Warrior Daughter of God"

Await further input ...[/quote]

Can anyone please confirm this;
Gaiscíocg Iníne Dé

Doesn't that create a double genitive?

It would if it was meant to be (warrior (of the daughter (of God))), but isn’t gaiscíoch iníne here a separate phrase?

(warrior-daughter (of God)) or ((warrior (of daughter)) (of God))

I think here ‘of God’ doesn’t modify directly the genitive iníne ‘daughter’s’, but rather the whole phrase gaiscíoch iníne ‘warrior daughter’, so it’s two unrelated genitives and not a double genitive here.
