Hi

I am looking for grammar and spelling advice. We wanted to give our farm a Scottish name. I have looked online but I think I keep getting incorrect terms.

Our farm has mountain views with snowy tops most of the time. Does anyone have any name suggestions.
Been thinking about jagged rock mountain names.

Thanks

Something with "creag" in it, maybe?

We have a good free online dictionary: https://www.faclair.com/

Pick something and then post both the English version and your attempt, and we'll try to fix it for you so that it will be correct.

Hey

Thanks for being so patient.
We like
Feòran = mountain

Could we add the work Farm to that or does it sounds better to just Feoran on its own?

With farm, it would be

Tuathanas an fheòrain

Feòran does not mean "mountain" though, see https://www.faclair.com/

For Farm of the Jagged Mountains, you might want something like
Tuathanas nan Sgorra-Bheann
or just
Tuathanas nan Sgorran
. Both meaning "The Farm of the Jagged Mountains/Peaks".
