Meggie Den

Meggie Den ~ KWY/SCO R NO360029 1 373

Maggie’s Den 1856 OS 6 inch 1st edn

? Sc* miggie or ? en Maggie + Sc den

Without earlier forms, this is a difficult name to interpret. It may be connected with the Sc element miggie or meggie, found only in place-names, and apparently referring to wet or muddy places (see PNF 5, Elements Glossary, under *miggie). The form Maggie’s Den, would then be a re-interpretation. See also Mandrethin KWY for further discussion.
