In news:slc9a.407$,
LarryDoherty <> typed:
|| Snip
|| For those without Irish/Gaelic, ? = 'Is Mise Gan Ainm',
|| and it means 'I, the Nameless One' or 'I am Nameless',
|| and the 'Is Mise' bit is usually used signing off a
|| letter eg. 'Is Mise le Meas' meaning 'I, with Respect'
|| or 'Respectfully Yours'.

So, you got that right! Is Mise means " It is I" or 'I am"
; so what's your point?
