A ranny

Noun[edit]

ranny (plural rannies)

  1. (obsolete outside dialects) A shrew (in the sense of the mouselike animal).
    • 1646, Sir Thomas Browne, Pseudodoxia Epidemica, XVIII:
      instead of a caligation or dimness, we conclude a cecity or blindness. Which hath been frequently inferred concerning other Animals, so some affirm the Water-Rat is blind, so Sammonicus and Nicander do call the Mus-Araneus, the shrew or Ranny, blind [...].
