    Irish name that sounds Arabic when spoken

    Hello all,

    I would like to find an Irish name that sounds Arabic when spoken, i.e. has an arabic counterpart

    My first son name is Kyan, spelt the Irish way and sounds Arabic - better for travelling as it doesn't get flagged in the airport

    The only others I found are:

    Ryan (Too close to my first sons name and a cousin has that name already)
    Adam (I Like this)
    Laith (I Like this) (not an actual Irish name but it looks and sounds Irish and the letter combination is used in many Irish words)

    Any Ideas?

    great site by the way

    Thanks

    Stephen (Ali)

    I am not that fimilar with Arabic but maybe these would work:

    Jarlath
    Malachi
    I like simple yet versatile names that work well for the athlete, the comic, the genius, and the judge.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but the letter 'k' doesn't exist in Irish :/ The Irish spelling would be Cian.

    Leith is a Scottish/Celtic name -- maybe it would work. Some other possibilities that perhaps close to this category: Ferris (Faris); Jasper; Kayden/Cayden (Kadin/Kaden); Myron.
