    Weird to Use an Irish Spelling if You're Not Irish?

    I'm in love with the name Eamonn Thomas, and I think it's a wonderful name. However, I'm in no way Irish, and, (unless of course I go to Ireland) it doesn't appear that I'll be getting to have babies with an Irishman. In case that moment never happens, would it be too weird to use Eamonn if he has no/minimal Irish heritage? If yes, I'd use Edmund Thomas instead.

    ps, Eamonn is said as Aim-on

    I think it would be fine, but I prefer the Eamon spelling (Is that different/Americanized?). It's a perfectly lovely name, imho.

    I love Eamon! I see no issue with it. Its already a widely accepted name, even if it isn't too popular. Just look at how many people worldwide are using Aidan!
