Religion Name  
 I have been trying to think of a name for Celtic Reconstructionism for the local community I have started, such as others have done with names like Pàganachd or Fálachus. I have been thinking that Aes Tuath would be a good name, it means "tribal people" or "rural people". What do you think of the name?

Sounds fine to me, the only fault I can possibly think of is that the definition could apply to any group anywhere; is there some aspect of the local area you could work in? (ie. lake, plain, indigenous type of animal)

nb. I'm no expert, I just thought you might appreciate a reply ;-)

I don't know if áes túath was ever used to refer to a people of a tribe. Muinter and féni and urra (all O.Ir.) are actually existing words used to refer to a collective of people belonging to a territory, túath, or other community.

I'd also check the grammar on that.
