I can't find "troll" but a giant is "famhair" (m.) and a dwarf is "troich"(f/m.) Take your pick. :)

...ach dè "Neanderthal man" anns a' Ghàidhlig? Oir tha mi a' creidsinn gur e sin a bha origin nan troll.

I would say giant is fuamhar, there is a place nearby my home town (Dingwall) called Novar which in Gaelic is Taigh an Fhuamhair (House of the Giant). :)

No idea what Troll is though! :naire:

Actually there are three common words for giant: famhair, fuamhaire and athach. As I said before, take your pick. Dèan do roghainn.
