RE: Eccles Rant - No Answers?
Eccles is a fairly common prefix in Scots placenames and there is at least one Eccles with no suffix. It shares the same root as the 'eagles' in Gleneagles and denotes a church, the Gaelic for which has decided from the same origins as eglise/yglesia. So Eccles' Rant may be named for a village rather than a character in The Goon Show. Peter Hastings Murieston -- No virus found in this outgoing message. Checked by AVG Free Edition.
