I was looking for three translations if that is not asking too much:

1) "Will" - as in "he has an intense will to get things done" (I have seen this as "Beidh")
2) "Colt" - As in the young horse.

Both the above are my children's names, but defining them as I've indicated is more accurate than just their name...if that makes sense.

3) Relentless - as in not giving up (I have seen as "gan staonadh")

Thank you. What a wonderful service you all provide.

I would guess this is from Google Translate. It’s very wrong: it means ‘will be’, simply the future tense of ‘to be’.

‘Will(power)’ is more like toil (though this is a bit wider in meaning than just ‘will(power)’).

Gan staonadh can work, but it depends on the context. It literally just means ‘without stop’.

Always wait for at least three people to agree on a translation, especially if it’s for something permanent.

My translations are usually GU (Ulster Irish), unless CO (Standard Orthography) is requested.
