Forblaith- is this a real name?
I heard the name Forblaith somewhere a few days ago (unfortunately I can't remember where now!) and it's been on my mind. Is it even a real name? Do you think it's better for a boy or girl? And most of all- how do you pronounce it? It has the same ending as Orflaith so I could see it being "fore-lah" or "forb-lah" but "fore-blayth" also seems to make sense. I have a Canadian accent if it makes a difference in pronunciation. There's also Forlaith- how is that pronounced?
Do you like Forblaith (and Forlaith)?~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

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

From some quick googling, it appears to be an old female Irish name. Variants of it that I could find include Florbfhlaith and Old Norse forms Hvarflo, Hvarflada, and Hvarflǫð. I would pronounce it "forb-lah."
