PCelt. *magino- ‘stone, place’. The attribution in IEW (709) to the root *meǵh₂- 'great' is possible, cf. Skt. mahī́- 'earth' (< *'the great one') and PCelt. *magos 'field', which might also be related. In this connection, it is interesting to note that W maen specifally means a stone 'having some speciality or a particular use', according to GPC. The OIr. form in -ā is a collective built from *magino-, like Lat. loca from locus.
