    Sinead as a boy's name?

    What do you berries say? Is it a passable name for a boy?

    I think Sinead is known widely for Sinead OConnor so I wouldn't use this name for a boy. Considering how people still hate her I wouldn't use it for a girl either!
    I type on an iPhone and take no responsibility for typos, auto-correction, or strange grammar in my posts.

    Sinead is the Irish form of the *female* name Jane. So, what's wrong with Sean, Seanan ("Shanawn") Shane, or Eoin ("Owen") - all *male* forms of John? If you would consider naming your son Jane, then by all means.

    Re: Sinead as a boy's name?

    One part of me is saying, "Well, people name their daughters Shawn, so why not name a son Sinead?" but I hate seeing boys' names like Shawn on girls, and the same should go for girls' names on boys (actually, even more so, because unfortunately a boy is much more likely to be teased for having a wrong-gender name than a girl). I'm going to side with the previous poster who said it's exactly the same as naming your son Jane. Especially if someday he wants to visit Ireland.
