      Dado que existe toxo albar e que albar e mesmo albariña significa nalgunhas zonas de Galicia uz, carpaza, breixo, penso que cabería tamén a posibilidade de interpreta-las rans albariñas como rans dos breixos.
      Considering that there is toxo albar and that albar and even albariña mean, in some regions of Galicia, heather, rockrose, heaths, I think we could also interpret rans albariñas as rockrose frogs.
