G'day JohnotSC & Charley Noble,

I understand that in most of the more northern germanic tongues (English is more west-germanic) "hell(e)" means (~) "beautiful". (I gather that the eastern USA, like Tasmania, when I used to live down there, has at least one waterfall called (~) Hells's Gates ...orinally understood as a compliment - for the beauty of the falls and surroundings!
