  • Having a daughter by that name, I often start with Niamh! I am amazed that though my school vocab is long gone (left 1977!), I can often get the answer through knowing the likely word shape! And I’m doing it from NZ! Great to have it!

  • Bainim triall chun focail le litreacha éagsúla a úsáid ar ndóigh. D’íoslódáil mé an liosta a d’úsáid sí leis an aip a chruthú. Bím ag scrolláil síos é, nuair gan nod ar bith atá agam. Más litir nó dhó tosaigh agam déanaim brabhsáil ar teanglann.
