    Re: Eccles Rant - No Answers?

    There are some other RSCDS name problems related to this. If you look
    at the Gaelic name for Menzies Rant, there is an interesting spelling
    error. The RSCDS Book translation comes out the "monastic men" when it
    should be "metelurgical men". If you look at the same family, almost
    same arms, in England, Manners (Dukes of Rutland, and in France, you
    will see that the name comes from miners.
