Draoi

pronounced dree

It's related to "druid."

Asarlaí = wizard/sorcerer
Cailleach = sorceress

As a couple of additional options.
Tá mé ag foghlaim i gcónaí. With translations, it is best to wait for someone more adept than I to confirm.

Can I have some pronounciation help on "asarlai"? I'm getting better at this, but I haven't quite figured out the rules yet.

Thanks,

E~

The draoithe are a different critter, though. For what einar_lucien is looking for (most likely for Everquest or a similar game), I think Asarlaí is best fitting :-)

Actually, I'm researching a name. I've recently joined the OBOD and I a searching for a Druidic name. I use OakMage as a domain, and I was trying to come up with something in Gaelic that I could use or modify that would mean something like that. I already knew that dru is oak, so I was looking for the other part.

I'm still undecided at this point, but I appreciate all the help.

The "Draoi" is the perfect word!

"Dair, darach" is "oak tree," so "Oak Druid" would be "Draoi Darach"

In case any are interested, I'm leaning toward Dra'arach. It's not just two words squished together to make one, and I like the way it sounds (assuming I'm pronouncing it right, of course).

Thanks for everyone's help, and the happiest of Solstices to you all.

There's no such word(s) as Dra'arach in Irish Gaelic. So long as you're aware fo that, go right ahead.
