Forms: mórmaer, mormoir, mormair

n o, m., Irish form of a Scottish word, probably of indigenous (? Pictish) origin, the title given to the custodian or defender of the Scottish coast . Acc. to a note communi- cated by A. O. Anderson, the Scottish form seems to have been morbhar (-mhar), the first syll. being = mor `sea'; cf. mod. Scotch Gaelic morair `lord', and follg. exx.: ingen mhorbair Moireogh `of the Earl of Moray', Rel. Celt. ii 164.13 . an M[h]orbhairn is magh Muile, | ar morbhair-ne a bfer faire, Elegy on Angus MacDonald, Lord MacDonnell and Aros (†1680), where Morbhairn `sea-gap' = Morvern. In Irish lit. the first syll. mor- appears at first as short; the second part was no doubt equated with maer (q.v.) and later the word was perhaps regarded as = mórmaer ` great steward ' (the usual translation). mormoér Búchan, Goid. 108.19 . ba hé robo mormáir ┐ robo thosec, 109.8 . bennact . . . ar cec mormar ┐ ar cec tosech, 110.12 . g s. cuit mormoir , 109.9 ; the above exx. are from Bk. of Deer (ed.
