from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A giddy, frisking girl.
And there's the distress of thae Mucklebackits -- we canna get a fin o 'fish -- and we hae nae time to send ower to Fairport for beef, and the mutton's but new killed -- and that silly fliskmahoy, Jenny
I maun do something to let you see there's one man in Thrums that has mair faith in you than in a fliskmahoy.
This word is a combination of 'flisk,' to fly about nimbly, and the endings of place names such as Dalmahoy or Lesmahago in Scotland.
