SourcesTom an t-Sìdhein, Dail Dhomhail 1874-76 Ordnance Survey 6 inch 1st edn.

The early OS forms relate to Gaelic names in the area now occupied by Happy Valley.
Dail Dhomhail. This is the Gaelic name of the area slightly North-West of the area now called Happy Valley. (East of where Dail Dhomhail once was is now Gleann Domhanaidh.)
Tom an t-Sìthein. This is a small hill within the current site of Happy Valley, now the site of Laundry Cottage.

This is a modern English / SSE name relating to a site that previously had no specific name in Gaelic. No translation would have any historic or local validity.
