Aidan is authentically Irish and I'm fond of it, but Nameberry generally considers it too popular. I only like this spelling.
Alan is authentically Irish, but, on the opposite end of the cool scale, generally panned for being old-man-ish.
Shane - Not particularly authentic and kind of cowboy-ish but I like it. I find it more endearing than Sean, probably because it's never been as popular.
Eoin - which is just a very-Irish-indeed way to spell Owen. My DH has been wanting to use this.
Malachy - I love this one, but I can't use it because my married surname is one of those 3-syllable Irish names that starts with M and ends with y and it's too same-y.
Barnaby - Have an Irish friend who adores this one, not sure I'd be brave enough to use it.
