? Sc tonie + Sc scaup

Sc tonie ‘jellyfish’ is given in CSD as Moray dialect, a reduced form of an Orkney and Caithness word clunkertonie. Following the same long-shore drift it is therefore quite possible to find this word in the Firth of Tay. It is less likely to be the pn Tony (from Anthony), partly due to the lack of the possessive s. For Sc scaup or scalp see Green Scalp FPC, above.
