Hi Jerry

[Gille Dubh ('servant of black-haired') would become Giolla Duibh in time
and
anglicized as Gilduff / Kilduff .]

In Ireland, yes. In Scotland I think he would have been Scotified from Gille
Dubh to McIldubh, pronounced McIlDoo?

A chairde / Friends

Gille Dubh ('servant of black-haired') would become Giolla Duibh in time and

anglicized as Gilduff / Kilduff . It would not ordinarily become
Dunnshliabh
('Brown Mountain', also spelled Donnsliabh) or Duinnshle/ibhe ('of Brown
Mountain').

O/ Duinnshle/ibhe ('Grandson of Brown Mountain') is usually anglicized as
O'Dunleavy, O'Dunlevy, Levy.

The O/ Duinnshle/ibhe were the Kings of the Da/l Fiatach of the Ulaidh until

beaten by John de Courcy ca. 1176. Having been dispossessed, they became
hereditary physicans in order to maintain their honor price and nemed
(holy/noble) status under Fe/ineachas ('Brehon Law').


Best,
Jerry
