Re: McNokaird = Sinclair ?
As I've always been taught, the Gaelic of Sinclair is Mac na Ceardadh.
When I was a lad on the town of Wick, we'd use the Gaelic at the school
just to mess about the teachers. Mac na Ceardadh is what we used then as
I got it from my Grand Father and I still use that name betimes today,
just for a lark. *s*
