Sons of Mil Gossip

Some say "Milesians" derives from a Greek word, but why can't it be Irish/Spanish? 

Our mom went to Scotland after Ireland—she gave the country its name "Scotland." Go, Mama, go!

"Mil Espaine" is short for "Miles Hispaniae," or "soldier of Spain." So that's why he was so into bullfighting!

Our Dad was originally from Scythia. What a world traveler!

All Irishmen or -women with "O" at the beginning of their last names descend from the Milesians. That's pretty much everyone. Good going, us!
