I've been searching Scots dictionaries online for "slainte" ... can't find it! Would appreciate the help of you who read this.
Was asked to name new baby girl Elderia was told it was from Scotland is it, and if it is what is the meaning if any?

And if it was a place-name, that would have popped up as well." A woner gin it micht bae the spelling/pronuncation ilk o Milnegavie, and Menzies. Many thanks Byde Wyle Gerald
I am so proud of this web site. I am an Aberdonian, I left Aberdeen 31 years ago. I go home to see my MUM as often as I can. I spoke the Doric but did not learn to write it. I went to Powis School and we were almost made to feel affronted of speaking like that. I remember my English teacher making me get up in front of my class and telling me that my MUM did not work "in the fish". But my MUM did work in the fish. I'm so happy that the shame is not there any more. Thanks so much for having this website.
