Bell, in my words

clogh : bell

The Fennas word for bell is clogh. Clogh (from Irish "an chloch" meaning "the stone") is the name of a handful of places in Ireland. Clogh is an unusual last name.

How did I come up with this word? The Welsh word for bell is cloch; the Irish word for bell is clog; and the Breton word for bell is kloc'h.

The words for bell in Welsh, Irish, and Breton are all quite similar.
