That's pretty cool! I bet if a feller was smart enough he would figure out what foreign name those names are. Robin Thompson said the waterswivel name supposed to be a German word of some sort. Kinda like the native American name of Tanasi got converted to Tennessee by the English. Probably every one of those dulcimore names were hillbilly pronunciations of something foreign, even Hogfiddle.
