Meaning of Furain

Andrea has been research the name “Furain” – did you know it is a Scottish Gaelic word? The verb means “welcome” or “invite” whilst the noun “furan” is masculine meaning “welcome” or “hospitality”. A fitting name for our lovely guest house!! We used learngaelic.net/dictionary/ to find the translation but also came across the use of the word in a Gaelic proverb: “Furain an t-aoigh a thig, greas an t-aoigh tha falbh” which means “Welcome the coming, speed the parting guest”. The translation reminded Andrea of her favourite Gaelic saying “ceud mìle fàilte” which translates to “one hundred thousand welcomes”. Do any of our guest speak Gaelic?
