    Irish and Persian Names

    I have been posting in the girl's forum about names for our little girl, but I am really becoming addicted to names lol So I am looking for suggestions of Irish and Persian/Arabic names for boys. I am sure we will have more children in the future and this way I can satisfy my current craving for names What are your favorite Irish names and Perian or Arabic names. My husband is Persian/Arabic and I am Irish. We are both Catholic and would prefer not to have any names associated with the Islamic relgion (we don't not mean this offensively we just think it would make things easier) Thanks for any help you provide.

    What about Dara? It's a male name both in Ireland and in Iran, and I believe it's also the name of a Catholic saint.
