    Tadhg or Teague and thoughts on the name

    Do you prefer the spelling Tadhg or Teague best? I am pronouncing each TIYG (like Tiger without the R). What are your thoughts on the name? I love that the name means "poet", which has special meaning but also honors my late grandma. http://www.behindthename.com/name/tadhg

    Most people will pronounce Teague Teeg (rhymes with Team) and will have no clue how to pronounce Tadhg (or pronounce it Tadig). I am not sure how I would spell the pronunciation you aregoing for. Tyg?

    I prefer not to use a made up spelling. Teague can be pronounced like TIYG or TEEG. Teague is the Anglicized form of Tadhg.

    I understand, but most people are not Berries. I love Saoirse but I know where I live it would be a constant battle of spelling and pronunciation.

    If that doesn't bother you, I would prefer the more traditional spelling Tadhg.

    I love and adore the name Tadhg as well as the spelling, but I think it is one of those names that needs to remain in Ireland or England. I have no idea where you are located, but if you are in the states there is just absolutely no way people will know how to pronounce it. I totally understand you not wanting to use a made up name, but in this case it might be an exception that would make you son's life a lot easier (if you are outside of Ireland)
