    Names similar to Saoirse and Eirys

    So my weirdo husband (yes weirdo, it is so difficult to pin down what he likes, he swings from super traditional to Irish/Welsh hard to pronounce names!).

    He likes Sarah, and I said I wanted something less common.

    So his choices were Saoirse and Eirys. While cool, and strong, I don't feel as if they are "it"...any suggestions which might fall into his obvious love of "r" and "s" would be helpful!
