Hi Miriam, padodes, it's true that the Sleamaine and Ir. slemhain, 'smooth, slippery (place)' resemble each other on paper, but there the resemblance ends. It needs to borne in mind that Sleamaine is an anglicised form and that the spelling conventions of Irish and English are radically different. Ir. sleamhain is actually pronounced approximately 'slowan' (rhyming with the surname 'Cowen') and this is roughly how one would expect it to be anglicised. By contrast, Liam Price (Place-Names of Co. Wicklow, vol. i, 54) indicates the pronunciation of Sleamaine as 'slee-maan'. It is most probably an anglicised form of Ir. Sliabh Meáin, 'middle mountain', of which there are at least 2 others in Wicklow. PW Joyce (Origin and History of Irish Names of Places, vol. i, 379) derives Sleamaine from Sliabh-meadhoin, 'middle mountain', which is merely the Classical Irish equivalent of Sliabh Meáin. Sleamhain, 'slippery place', does appear in place-names, for instance in Sleans, Co. Antrim, Slanemore/Slanebeg, Co. Westmeath and probably Slawin, Co. Fermanagh, but never with an M in the anglicised form. It's worth checking out Liam Price's book. There are very few mountain names in Wicklow which he doesn't deal with. In the meantime I will see that this derivation and meaning gets added in the next place-names update to MV. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/690/comment/2921/
