Translator help (Scottish or Shetlandish)

I have a new Sheltie and am hunting a name for him. He is fascinated by mirrors so I was thinking reflection or mirror in Shetlandish or Scottish (I think they are related)

Something like mirror gazer depending on the translation would be cool

Thank

Re: Translator help (Scottish or Shetlandish)

The Gaelic for mirror is Sgathan, reflection is the same just add "an" to the end (Sgathanan).. Hope this helps

For his ears (no he is not being trained to be a poof). They hold his ears up and together and will fall off in a couple of weeks. Kind of like when people tape a German Shepherds ears to keep them from getting broken, Shelties ears go up and fold on the top half.

Cute puppy. I reckon he's sussing out how to drive.

I was young and stupid then. I'm old and stupid now.
We get too soon old, and too late smart.
I started off with nothing and still have most of it left.
