A connection between Gaulish <i>s(o)uxt-</i>, early Irish <i>suacht</i> and later <i>suacan</i> has recently been tentatively suggested by Lambert (2000; 2004). The present paper, by exploring the phonological variants of the word <i>suacan</i>, its attestation and its semantic range in Scottish Gaelic, illustrates that Scottish Gaelic holds the key to establishing with certainty such a connection.
