  • What does L.E. stand for

    What does the L.E in L.E Deidre, Emer, Niamh etc...
    I went into an Italian restaurant and ordered dessert and they gave me tiramisu and a blindfolded horse and I said No, I said mask a pony (mascarpone)

    L.E.

    "Long Eireannach" = "Irish Ship" (or boat, depending on your Irish).
    Same idea as USS (United States Ship) or HMS (Her Majesty's Ship).

        Meaning of L.É.

        Hello, I was just curious as to what L.É. stands for in the ship names. I've looked around the web, and cant seem to find it. Any reply is much appreciated!

              And isn't Long an irregular noun, with the plural being Lingus - hence Aer Lingus?

                Lingus is a latinisation of "loingheas".

                  Thought the plural of long was loing, but I may be wrong.... (Frantically Googling for an
                  Irish-English/English-Irish dictionary)
                  ... have discovered that it's longa

                    If I recall correctly, "Lingus" is "Fleet" as opposed to "vessels"
                    Meh.

                          The trick to pet names is a combination of affectionate nouns. Honeybun. Sugarpie. Kittentits.

                            State ship ! for the non Irish speaking amongst us. Or ship belonging to the state if you like...but this dosen't mean you can turn up looking for the free tour whenever it suits you!
