    Sibling for Desmond and Fiona

    Hey everyone! I’m expecting baby #3 and would love some name suggestions and input from you on my current list. My last name starts with “Mc” and has 3 syllables. My son is named Desmond and my daughter is Fiona. I tend to gravitate toward Gaelic or Irish names, but I’m open to other names that fit stylistically with my first two kiddos. I’m trying to steer away from traditional Irish names that will be difficult for others to pronounce (as beautiful as they are!)

    A couple of names I really liked that are out for us - Charlie because my brother just used it for my nephew, and Owen because we have close family friends who used it for their son.

    Here are my current picks:

    -Ronan (Does it sound too close to Fiona?)
    -Violet
    -Eamon (my fave, but I haven’t won DH over yet)
    -Kieran


    Thank you!!

    I loooove Eamon. I actually knew brothers named Eamon and Desmond! Ronan is a little close but not too close, imo. I like all the names you have, but here are some more possibilities if you want them!

    Oona (traditional Irish, can also be Una, but intuitive pronunciation)
    Maeve (also traditional Irish but becoming popular enough, pronunciation probably won't be an issue)
    Nora
    Gemma
    Charlotte
    Lorcan
    Griffin
    Colin

    Aoife Rosemary ○ Maeve Erin
    Jasper Edmund ○ James Arthur

    Anya ○ Nuala ○ Inga ○ Bronwen
    Eamon ○ Miles ○ Anders ○ Magnus ○ Joel

    Hi there.

    I *love* your kids names! Desmond is so handsome & charming. It's strong yet gentle. And Fiona is my absolute favorite name ever. It's my dog's (A.K.A. the love of my life) name.

    Anyway, here are my thoughts for #3:

    Violet-This is lovely. It's old fashioned yet fresh sounding at the same time. It works well on a sweet little one, but isn't too childish on an adult. It's getting a bit common though, if that's a concern for you.

    Ronan-I don't think that this is too close to Fiona. It's perfect! Very handsome. It's very Gaelic, but it's simple.

    Eamon-This is my newest baby nephew's name (we have a 'Mc' ln too, & a whole brood of Gaelic named nephews.) I just love it. It's dashing. It's not terribly complicated, yet rather unique.

    Kieran-Another nephew! This is really nice, but I personally prefer Ciaran. That separates it from Karen, you know?

    Girl suggestions:

    Anwen

    Arwen

    Audrey

    Azalea

    Briar

    Branwen

    Elspeth

    Juniper

    Louise

    Louisa

    Laurel

    Malin

    Maren

    Maire...okay, okay how about Maura? Maire will be confusing for pronunciation.

    Maeve

    Niamh-mainstream enough?

    Nuala-I prefer this is a nn for Finuala, but that's too close to Fiona.

    Olive

    Pearl

    Rose

    Rosamund

    Sloane

    Boy suggestions:

    Alistair

    Adrian

    August

    Asa

    Barnaby

    Brennan

    Cian

    Cullen

    Casey

    Clive

    Conall

    Elliott

    Ellis

    Ewan

    James

    Keats

    Louis/Lewis

    Linus

    Lachlan

    Milo

    Nolan

    Oscar

    Peter

    Patrick

    Quinn

    Quinlan

    Rafe

    Rowan

    Sullivan

    Shaw

    Hope this helps.
