Hi ILFers,

Hoping for your help with the translation of some phrases/ideas for a farm name....
Have been looking this up now for the last few months and finally decided to ask for your help because I really want this to be correct without room for error :D

So I've been thinking of different words for the name, (apologies but I am using a French keyboard and don't know how to add the fadas...)
Really like duchas but as there exists duchas.ie, I wouldn't like any confusion when people begin searching on the internet.
Been thinking also of Comhaltas, Comhar, Comhluadar, Duchas (fada on the 'u'), Sona, Misneach....

Thought then of 'An Beatha Glas' --> would this work? beatha as a noun, is it male or female? Does glas require a fada on the 'a'?

But maybe would like to add 'feirm' in there somewhere....

Love to hear your ideas guys :wave:

Maybe this is OK:

Feirm na Beatha Glaise

Wait for more ideas.

Personally I'd prefer "saol" to "beatha" in that context.

An Saol Glas


What about "Na hAcraí Glaise" - Green Acres :LOL:

"na hAcraí Glasa"? (is é "glaise" tuiseal ginideach uatha baininscneach "glas")

I don't understand - I also have an AZERTY keyboard, but if you want to put in the fadas on small and capital letters, they are there above your message space - unlike on other forums.
