    Irish Name Lover

    Hey there I’m not TTC or anything but I like planning things in my head. I really love Irish names and really want to use them someday on my children, but I don’t live in Ireland and I fear that the names would get butchered. What do you guys think? Should I just go for it? My name gets mistaken for Hannah all the time, I don’t know if that’s sort of the same thing but it’s never bothered me too much! I would love some feedback on my list I have as well, thanks everyone!

    Girls-
    Saoirse (seer-sha)
    Niamh (neev)
    Maeve (mayv)
    Caoimhe (kee-vah)
    Roisin (ro-sheen): not too sure about this one, afraid people might call her Raisin

    Boys-
    Cian (kee-an)
    Seamus (shay-mus)
    Eoin (oh-wen)
    Cillian (kill-e-an)
    annabelle | teenberry | dog mom to cassie

    planning ahead:

    Genevieve Ophelia - Maeve Rosalind - Catherine Elysia - Ines Victoria - Elizabeth June - Madeleine Tessa - Elodie Pearl - Wilhelmina Bea “Mina” & Philippa Margot “Pippa”


    Sebastian Leo - Philip Tobias - August James - Clark Alexander - Harrison Samuel - Asa Maxwell - Seamus John - Cillian Arthur & Quentin Thomas


    names without middles: Nolan - Sawyer - Myles - Cian - Niamh - Saoirse - Michaela

    I think Maeve is super usable, I know like 3 in the US here and it’s easily pronounceable. Saoirse and Niamh people will take some time to get used to but they’ll get the hang of it. I don’t like Caoimhe is usable, although I do like it. I think all your boys names are fine.

    Thank you so much for your input I feel like Saoirse isn’t too bad due to the actress and Niamh isn’t that bad either. I wasn’t too sold on the look of Caoimhe but I do love the pronunciation.

    Saoirse looks beautiful as spoken and has lovely meaning, I would use it in a heartbeat, but I feel like there are better known and less popular English names.

    Thank you for your opinion! I do agree with you on the fact that theres better known and less popular english names that I consider as well, I just really love the meaning of Saoirse which is “liberty” and the pronunciation!
