Cladh is, in fact, old Irish for a trench or earthwork. Now we might imagine the spoon as the entrenching tool used by the local equivalent of Finn MacCool to dig the trench. (Well, I say might...)--Old Dickens (talk) 17:27, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
In Scottish Gaelic, now, it refers to another sort of diggings: a cemetery. --Old Dickens (talk) 03:12, 7 April 2017 (UTC)
But it's another Gaelic outpost, Cornwall, that has a Giant's Spoon. Gaelicness seems to be blended and spread across Llamedos and Hergen randomly, although the Scottish style is carried in the sporrans of the Nac Mac Feegle wherever they go. --Old Dickens (talk) 17:45, 3 November 2017 (UTC)
