An Irish or English surname?
Hey guys, I'm stuck between two surnames for my character Anita: the Irish and the English versions. The English version is Mulready (Anita Mulready), while the Irish version is Ní Mhaoltáin (Anita Ní Mhaoltáin). Which do you think sounds better? Just to be clear, they're both Irish surnames, except that the first one is translated from Gaeilge to English, while the second one is just Gaeilge. Thanks =)Alice O'Dea, Simona Valentine, Link North, Eli Deacon, Benny Snowden

If you are writing a story/book then you want the name to be readable and pronounceable so I would reccomend Mulready

I agree with the PPs, Mulready is the best option.Laurel - 21 - Aries - Slytherin - University of Toronto

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.
