    Irish American Baby girl name poll

    Hi All - Still trying to make up our minds on a baby girl name for our first daughter - we already have 3 boys. Our boys have trad Irish names - Declan, Brendan and Sean. We want to keep it easy enough to pronounce for the Americans we will deal with daily. We have a very simple neutral last name that does not indicate Irish heritage - similar to Smith. We now have it down to 3 choices. One of the choices includes a first name of Mary - and given the suggestions that the Royal baby may be named Mary - I am now not sure . . . and our little girl is due in the next two weeks!

    I'd go with Alanna Marie. I would have gone with Ciara but only spelt as such.

    I prefer Ciara - but the insistence of numerous Americans that it is pronounced Sierra or Key-Ar-A would annoy me beyond belief. I have realized that Keira is the only spelling that people can remotely pronounce!

    Have you considered Moira instead of Mary? It's such a graceful and beautiful variation of Mary, and reminds me of the beautiful ballerina in "The Red Shoes".
