I've forgotten the word for when you name yourself using a list of your ancestors, as in Ailean mac Ailein 'ic Dhomhnuill 'ic Iain 'ic Alasdair 'ic Iain 'ic Iain 'ic Dhughaill. The word that's in my mind is slionachd, but the internet suggests that's not right. Does anyone know what the word for this is?
