? Compd. Meyer, Wortk. 57 , takes Uanfind, LL 363g44 to be an etymological spelling of Úanaind (for which he gives no ref.) lit.`foam-white'. In the LL passage the name is that of the mother of Mobí Clárenech and it is printed Uan Find, Mart. Tall. Oct. 12 . In the notes to Fél. Óengusso the name varies in the MSS.: Huaine, Huanir, Hunide, Fél. 222 , 224 ; LB has Uainind ( Fél. p. clvi ).
