Meaning of the name Kermore,

- The name Kermore / KÍrmore comes from the Breton language. Newer, so Breton name at most 300 years old, can be interpreted relatively easily; the name Kermore seems to be older. The Breton language therefore allows several meanings of the word Kermore.
The first part of the name "KÍr-" is a common element in Breton place names and means: city, village or hamlet.

The second element "-more" indicates a natural feature: large or significant. Thus, possible translation of KÍrmore is "*** village" or "significant place". Since Kermore consists of only a few buildings, Kermore can be translated as "significant place". The Breton name probably referred to the former, great importance of the place.

What variations of the name Kermore are there on the internet?
- Variations on the search engines: Kermore, Kermor, KÍrmore. Kermor, Kenmor, Kermor, Kerm'och, Kermore, Kermove, Cermor, Cermore, Cermore, Kermoch, Kermogh, Ker-mor, Ker-more, "Kermore", #Kermore.

Why was the fountain discovered only now?

- Until about 10 years ago, most of the stones were not or only superficially recognizable. In 2008, the stones were cleaned and even loose earth superficially removed. Only then did it become apparent that this is not a natural accumulation of rocks.

At what age is the Fountain of Kermore dated?

- Due to the engravings and finds, it can be assumed that the age is more than 7000 years.
