    Question Eira Snow - too much?

    So I'm starting to like the name Eira and I just thought Eira Snow was a cute combination. Not sure if I'll ever use it, maybe for a story, but is it too much since Eira means snow?

    I'm so sorry, this could just be me because Welsh is my first language but I find it very strange because in my head I'm just saying Snow Snow. To me it's like being like being called Primavera Spring or Happy Feliz. I think you should just choose one of the names and use it as either a first or middle name. You could keep the one you didn't use for another child.

    Yep, same here.

    I think it's because it literally means Snow Snow. Something like Fiona Bianca (both mean 'white' or 'fair') would work because neither are foreign words with direct translations.

    In the non-Welsh world, it is fine. But for those of us who know what Eira means, I think it is is terribly redundant. I would keep Eira and find another middle name.

    If ever they are asked what their unusual name means or where it is from an awkward "it means Snow ....oh and that's my middle name as well" conversation is likely.

    It works nicely .....with anything but snow .
