Introduction

A great number of names employing "Lady" (Ladykirk, Ladywell, etc.) undoubtedly refer to the Blessed Virgin Mary, but it can be difficult in many instances to discern whether a name simply commemorates a female landowner or member of the nobility; equally, there may be some suspicion in a number of cases that "Lady" refers to another female saint, esp. Brigit.
