Not specifically Scotland or Ireland as this kind of affectionate talk is universal amongst all cultures around the world, each culture will just have their own words in their own languages. The word used by Jeanni will indicate the language important for the purpose of this GG.

No Jeanni. The lyrics from the Easter Song just mean romance. But it is an Afrikaans word. If one of the words (repeated) be translated into Afrikaans, it will be easier to guess the alias.

Clue: People romantically involved sometimes say this word to show affection when they see and greet each other again after a separation. Like this: “Hallo …. “ (It is an Afrikaans word, part of the word is repeated in the GG clues, but translation from English is required)

Yes, Jeanni :thumbs_up: You guessed the alias correctly :clap: :clap: :clap:

Alias

Not an English Treasure – Romantic talk is important for this GG but in Afrikaans, not English. Treasure in Afrikaans is Skat.

In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade – Lyrics from the Romantic song Easter Parade. (Romantic talk)

Oh Gorgeous One – Romantic talk

My Bonnie Lass – “Me and My Bonnie Lass (pretty girl) are going out tonight”. Scottish Romantic talk.

Not an English Treasure – Treasure is Afrikaans for Skat

= skattebol which is the alias of the forum member

Thank you GG-ers :gflower:
