The Ogham. ( pronounced OH-am or OH-yam ) , is also know as the Druid's Alphabet. The letters correspond to their 20 sacred trees. The 25-letter alphabet was supposedly inspired by Ogma, god of eloquence. The letters are strung together along a central line, either vertically or horizontally, in which case the letters are rotated.
Here is my tattoo now that my skin has chilled out. It's Ogham, the alphabet the celts used circa 400 A.D. It says Seanchaí (shan-a-kee) which is Gaelic for Storyteller. When the rest of civilization began writing down their history and myths, the Irish passed their's down orally. Seanchaí's were the keepers of the lore. They eventually became bards, and in the modern world, they are professional storytellers. It's big in Ireland. There's your long answer.
Ogham, Celtic tree alphabet, says “gaol buan” which, when translated, says “unfailing love”. You read it from bottom to top and each set of lines is a letter.--Great idea!!! i already have my name on a necklace :)
