Albeit the Scot in me is of the Western stock and the red of the Cairngorms, the heather and the Lewissian gneiss, the Viking in me was there when you uttered the first word of your leid.

I think it's kind of interesting that the word for butterfly in so many languages has some kind of a phonetic "echo" / repetition of a sound in them:

"papallona", "farfalla", "pulelehua", "titili", "pepe", "kabakaba", "paruparo", "kupukupu", "ramarama", "parpar", "kamama" etc.
