There are three main types of placename in the Isle of Man; Manx, Norse and English. Many of the English placenames are fairly new, and have been pasted over the Manx names by ignorant officials. There is a link for Manx placenames here, and another here. The major towns in Manx are Doolish (Douglas), Rhumsaa (Ramsey), Balley Chastel (Castletown), Purt ny h-Inshey (Peel), Kione Droghad (Onchan), Laksaa (Laxey), Purt Chiarn (Port Erin) and Purt le Moirrey (Port St Mary). Neighbouring countries are Nerin (Ireland), Nalbin (Scotland), Sostyn (England), Bretin (Wales) and Y Rank (France).
Over 5 days I want to find more information about Maori and especially I want to Learn Maori and now this artical save me.
Thank you so much.
