Quoting T + T = A S G ♥:" I would've never guessed that :oops: I like it, though!!"


Some of the gaelic spellings are SO tough to guess haha!
The other we have are Caoimhe (keev-a), Saoirse (Seer-sha) & Liadin (Lee-uh-din)

I have been trying to make up my mind on Liadan.....I love it, I think it sounds fabulous but I worry about people assuming it is masculine and trendy. :/

I love it but I'm a maaasive gaelic/irish name fan.
I would literally name every kid of mine an irish name, but SO moans that they're too hard to pronounce. It's true, but boo :(

I really like Laoise aswell, but I'm worried people will think it's Louise.

Orlaith is Orla and Aoife is Eefa. In the irish accent it sounds like Eva though.
Cian is gorgeous.

Yeah, that is another one I love but worry about. I think a few of them have become main stream enough to get by with using the gaelic spellings, but I still think a majority of them would have issues - which wouldn't stop me from using it, honestly.

She's got amazing taste! Plus her SO is irish, so she can use all the beautiful gaelic names she wants, wah!

Same here. Although I could have had a Seamus...he just didn't look like a Seamus though.

Nice, complimentary, a tad boring. I just don't like Jacob, I don't think...not bad, just very over done right now. Emma seems to be dropping off drastically or is that just me?

My oldest is Jacob and it's always been on the top baby names list, but it seems like we meet younger Jacobs all the time now! Back when I named him, I had only met adults named Jacob.
