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:
Aoife - although we worry about pronunciation
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!Molly: mummy-to-be, wife, vintage lover, and teacher!

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...
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
Cerys or Carys
Seren - Welsh word for 'star' which I think is beautiful, really trendy in the UK, said seh-REN in Welsh
Eira - means 'snow'
Ffion - FEE-on
Betsan or Bethan
Catrin - love this one
Eirys - Welsh word for Iris, said the same
Eleri - from Welsh mythology
Rhosyn - Welsh word for 'rose'★ close to my heart ★ Billie Cordelia - Jemima Eilidh - May Margaret - Estella Agnes - Jessamine Martha
Emmett Jack - Alec Huw - Wilfred Nicholas - Rufus Kielder - Harrison Tadhg - Robert Fox - Wes Oberon
