    I love both Niamh Maire and and Keira Mae! Niamh Maire doesn't flow as well since both names are one syllable- have you considered Niamh Mary? I like that you're using Irish names to honour your heritage. Niamh is one of my favourite Irish names (I also love Orflaith and Roisin) and I like the sleek, modern sound of Keira (I do think of Keira Knightley right away, but I've probably seen Pride and Prejudice dozens of times).
    ~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Scarlett, Felicity, Juliet
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Oliver, Darcy, Orlando

    I think Mary Niamh makes a fantastic double-first.

    How about Mairead? This is one of my favorite Irish names, and reminds me of Mary.

    I think Mary Niamh is pretty, but you could run into a lot of pronunciation issues. Another suggestion is Mary Clare.
