    Too boring? Need advice!!

    My husband and I are having a hard time agreeing on a girl name this time around. I prefer simple Irish names and would prefer something pretty, yet unique (we already have a Maeve). The only name we’ve both agreed on is Sarah, but while I think it’s a beautiful name, feels a little boring and common. What are your thoughts? Any other names you love that might fit the bill? Thanks so much!!!

    I agree it is a little too common and worn out for my personal taste, and a bit too far in style from the mythological feel of Maeve. Might I suggest something that sounds like Sarah, but closer in style to Maeve?

    Seren
    Cerys
    Saoirse/Sorcha
    Sorrell

    Other names like Maeve that might fit the bill:
    Iris
    Isla
    Luna
    Freya
    Willa
    Flora
    Thalia
    Astrid

    Hope this helps!

    Hugo Atticus & Vera Imogen
    Vigo Elias & Saga Ione

    Thinking about:
    Jasper Endymion & Margot Olympia
    Rigel Evander & Ceres Ariadne

    I do agree that the overuse of Sarah has made it boring and uninteresting, for me at least anyway... what about using it as a middle name, if you both like it?
    Now posting as @thelittlefairywren!
    ...felt the need for a fresh user...

    My sister is Sarah and often wishes she had a more unusual name. However I'm an Emily and don't have an issue with my name. I think it depends more on the personality of the person.

    Sarah is a little unexciting but I've only ever met one little Sarah so maybe it's less expected these days?

    Some names that came to mind:
    Sarai (variation of Sarah)
    Zara (variation of Sarah)
    Una
    Eva
    Cara
    Vera
    Lyra
    Saoirse
    Bella
    Ada
    Gwen

    Sarai Matilda|Mabli Charlotte|Una Adele|Cherith Eliza
    Sloane Felicity|Flora Penelope|Juno Delilah|Lois Aurelia
    Sholto Felix|Tristan Rafferty|Percy Evander|Bram Atticus
    Otto Elias|Linus Theodore|Jude Amadeus|Jesse Peregrine

    What about Tara? It's very similar to Sarah, more unique, and Irish.

    I also like a previous suggestion of Kira but I'm pretty sure the Irish spelling would be either Ciara or Kiera.... it's one of those names that can be spelled many different ways. I just think that the Kira spelling holds a different meaning but I'd have to double check.

    Other ideas are Fia and Erin

    What about Sadie? It's a diminutive of Sarah, but seems more stylistically similar to Maeve.
