I've had an idea that may make more sense of context.
Could someone be so kind as to please translate
"Born of a thousand loves".
Many thanks.


Rugadh de thoradh ghrá na mílte - Born as the result of love of thousands.

Also a possibility but probably not a very natural translation:
Rugadh de thoradh míle grá - Born as the result of a thousand loves.

Wait for confirmation on either.

Rugadh ó mhíle grá.
Born of a thousand loves.

This is basically extracted from the Biblical phrase
(Fear a) rugadh ó bhean - (Man that is) born of a woman.

Just my couple of cents to the pot.

'Rugadh' = 'was/were born' and requires (in this case) the pronoun 'mé'.

Tweaking MacBoo's contribution (at Errigal's suggestion):

Rugadh ó mhíle grá mé.
"I was born of a thousand loves."

Await further input ...

Thank you!
I'm definitely leaning towards using the word born/rugadh.
I'd love for someone to assist me with pronouncing these words if possible?
Once I have 3 confirmations on this I'll be booking it in.
So excited!
Thanks again to all those who have contributed!
