    Irish or Italian or Welsh?

    When our daughter is born she will have Irish, Italian, Welsh and English blood and we definitely want to honour one of these nationalities when naming her.

    So far all we have are:
    Irish:
    Aoife - although we worry about pronunciation
    Orla
    Maeve

    Italian:
    Francesca
    Carina
    Adriana
    Gianna
    Siena

    Welsh:
    Gwyneth
    Meredith
    Anwen

    Her middle name is going to be Clancy (my maiden name), we might add another middle name but we aren't sure.

    I would love to know what you think! Any new suggestions are welcomed!

    Thank you so much!

    If it was up to me, I'd go with either Maeve Siena Clancy, or Maeve Adriana Clancy. I also don't mind Siena Anwen Clancy, but I prefer the others :P

    Aoife Clancy and Meredith Clancy are both lovely, but my favourite with Molly is Orla. They make brilliant sisters.

    Since Molly is so English sounding (my friend said recently ''there's an English Molly wherever you go'' recently and I swear she's right, they're everywhere) I think the likes of Gianna/Adriana might be a bit too Italian - I don't know how Francesca is seen in the US but it's quite homely in the UK due to it's popularity, but elsewhere it might be seen as too Italian with Molly also.

    Some suggestions for Molly's little sister, I'm not particularly knowledgeable about Italian names so these are just a few Irish and Welsh ideas...
    IRISH
    Muiren - MWEE-rin, she's a mermaid in Irish mythology, it's one of my favourites right now.
    Sioda - SHEE-da, it's actually masculine originally, but it's used on females now too.
    Elva or Alva - original spelling Ailbhe
    Siofra - SHEE-fra
    Ciara - KEE-rah
    Nuala - Nula
    Oona or Una
    Emer - I love this one too, it just doesn't work in my accent, also spelled Eimear in Ireland.
    Imogen - the Shakespearean name actually came from ''Innogen'' which is linked to the Irish word inighean meaning daughter so can be classed as technically Irish with English history.
    Ailish - originally spelled Ailis, there's also Eilis/Eilish
    Fiona
    Honora

    WELSH
    Cerys or Carys
    Seren - Welsh word for 'star' which I think is beautiful, really trendy in the UK, said seh-REN in Welsh
    Angharad
    Eira - means 'snow'
    Ffion - FEE-on
    Rhiannon
    Nia
    Tegan
    Ceridwen
    Betsan or Bethan
    Alys
    Catrin - love this one
    Eirys - Welsh word for Iris, said the same
    Eleri - from Welsh mythology
    Morwenna
    Rhosyn - Welsh word for 'rose'
    ★ O L I V I A ★
    (seventeen, student / traveller, obsessively maternal and owner of darling black cat Shura)

    Emmett - Alec - Rufus - Wilfred - Eoghan
    Trudie - Fenella - Aoife - Jemima - Eilidh
