I trying to come up with a boat name. Our farm is Sky Farm, our house is Sky House so want the boat name to have Sky and Water in it. How can I combine Speir and Uisce to makes some sort of sense?

If you wanted to combine the two words there's - spéir bháistí - which means 'watery sky'. Although this is a different idea, you might like to know that the name for a magically beautiful lady is a 'sky woman' - spéirbhean, but it's quite possible that this name would already have been taken for a boat.

Uisce na spéire - is 'water of the sky', but I'm not sure that it would mean anything to an Irish-speaker. Wait for confirmation and other ideas from the others.

Thanks. Also thought of "Uisce agus Speir".

Well in fact what I've just given you means 'rainwater' - NB the 'e' in - spéir has an accent (fada).
