Maol a Chliobain
There is a Scottish story "Maol a Chliobain," which is quite a bit like "Molly Whuppie."

Can anyone give me an approximate pronunciation for the Scottish title? I'm supposing that the "Maol a" sounds something like "Molly"... I've tried unsuccessfully to work out the last name with the help of some "Scottish pronunciation" info...

I fancied that it might sound something like someone clearing their throat and saying "Holly-bean". Am I way off?

Re: Maol a Chliobain
From what I understand, it would be pronounced "Meel a Klihbahn"

M- pronounced as English
Ao- as in 'tree' (ee)
L- pronounced as English

a- as in 'ago' (ah)

Ch- as in 'loch' (ck)
L- pronounced as English
Io- as in 'miss' (ih)
b- pronounced as English
ai- pronounced 'ah'
n- pronounced as English

-Molly
