Afternoon,

I would also like some confirmation before getting tattoo'd. I would like to get my son's name, "Niall" and the word "Trybe" in Ogham.

I do not trust the online translators and seeing as tattoos are permanent I would appreciate someone helping me out.

Thank you, Linda

The ogham alphabet does not have the letter y, so straight away this isn't going to be possible to transliterate into ogham.

However, this is what your son's name would look like in ogham:

Many thanks for this, do not want to have a tattoo that I think says something and it actually means something else. Niall looks really good.

Our shop is Trybe Ink, it is just our way of spelling tribe. The ethos behind Trybe Ink is exactly that, a Tribe. A singular consciousness of people wanting to not only "ink up" but build a memory, a moment in time, to celebrate their journey.

In case you're interested, Niall, is actually and Irish name, and would have been something like *NÉLLOS if it existed when ogam was being written (i.e. in the Primitive-Irish period).

You can check out what it looks like from:

https://ogham.co/?q=n%C3%A9llos (the link is from the nascanna úsáídeacha)

As regards 'trybe', I would suggest treabh 'tribe', or tuath 'polity/ tribe'; these would have been sometime like *TREBÁ, *TÚATÁ in primitive Irish.

You're very welcome.

However, wait for three to agree.

I'd recommend going with the Old Irish versions: i.e. Néll, Treb/ Túath, as these are attested.
