    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.
