    Irish baby names to match Martha?

    So, my fiance has decided that, because we've given our daughter Martha an Irish nickname (Maisie, short for Mairead, Irish form of Margaret), he wants our next baby to have an Irish name. We've settled on Bobby Patrick for a boy, but again, stuck for girls. We live in the UK, so pronunciation isn't a problem, as a lot of people seem used to these names. We just don't know of many that suit with Martha! Please no names starting with M though

    Aileen
    Clare
    Colleen
    Darcy
    Fiona
    Nora
    Fianna
    Maeve
    Mona

    I think these work better with Martha than a Saoirse or a Niamh would.

    I would like for another traditional English name that lends itself to an Irish nn.

    Caroline with nn Cara
    Eleanor with nn Nora
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.
