Klefsan, an Irish buffoonish character described in one of the Irish marvels of Konungs skuggsjá, according to which he was able to provoke laughter even in death when his skull was put on display in the churchyard where his body lay buried. According to Kuno Meyer, Klefsan represents a corrupt form of an originally Irish name, Clessán (from cless ‘trick’). He suggests that its corrupt form is attributable to a misreading (implicitly, of Insular s for f). Cf. Mac Rustaing in the Commentary to the Félire Óengusso.
