Scottish Gaelic Translation - Help Needed

Hi there,

I am looking in to getting a tattoo in memory of my father. He was born in Scotland and being Scottish has been a very important part of my life, something I have always taken strong pride in.

Can anybody tell me what "Daddy's Little Girl" is in Scottish Gaelic?
Is there a Gaelic name for William?
Also, what is "I Love You" in Gaelic? All of my sources have shown 3 versions. I do not understand which would be appropriate when directing it to my deceased father.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Sorry DLG can't help, but welcome to the forum anyway.

Can help a bit.

I love you - Tha gradh agam ort (note should be accent above letter "a" in word "gradh")

or perhaps more common

"Tha gaol agam ort." (pronounced: Hah GEUL AH-kum orsht) "I love you."

William - Uilleam (pronounced ool-yam)

Book Source: Everyday Gaelic - Morag MacNeill

That's the best I can do for now, been away from Gaelic learning for years.

Sorry, can't answer the question, but please make sure you thoroughly check any the information you obtain from an anonymous internet forum before getting it tattooed on your arm...
