Translation of Celtic words "Lenna vanmo"

Hi, I've found ChoralNet whilst looking for this translation - it was the only thing on Google that referenced the right thing - but it was an unanswered question from 1996!!!
 
Any Celtic speakers out there: can I have a translation please? I assume it's Celtic because the post from 1996 said so.  It's from a song by Michael Wilson, 1934. Speciially written for children in Sunfield Children's Home.
 
Much appreciated if you can help.

I suspect it means 'my baby' or 'my babies'.  I found this on Wiktionary: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/leanabh.

Thank you Steve - yes, what you found does seem like the right sort of thing. I had concluded it must be something like 'a cara' in, is it Welsh? Might be talking through my hat there, but it was somewhere in my memory bank.
