Chief researcher for a new study of Scottish place names, Dr Simon Taylor, says: "Scotland is a country where many different languages have been spoken over the last 1,500 years, and its place names reflect this rich and varied history. What we are doing is giving teachers the tools to explore Scotland's rich heritage."
The Glasgow University project is looking at place names in Clackmannanshire, Kinross-shire and Menteith, and considering which of the country's six historical languages influenced the naming. The study is aimed at giving Scottish schoolchildren a new way to look at their heritage.
And by the way, Puddledub means "puddle" in both Scots and English.
