Ogham Transliterator – Write your name etc in Ogham script.


Ogham is written from the bottom upwards. It has been said that it is written as a tree would grow.

One thing I’ve always found interesting about Ogham is the first five characters and their equivalents to the Irish numbers:
1 2 3 4 5
H D T C Q
hAon
Dó
T
Ceithir
Cuig


Aside from being found mainly in Ireland, example have been found in Scotland (along with some Pictish markings), the Isle of Man, Cornwall, Wales (along with the odd Brythonic Latin inscription) and even England.
