    Muireann - This means Goddess of the Sea, and has been Anglicised to Maren. Pn: Mwirrin or Mirrin

    I think Muireann is beautiful and I'd go with that. Its so pretty!

    My best friend is named Muirenn! She had always thought it meant 'moors'. I'll have to tell her about that! I think Muirenn/Muireann would suit your character, and it's such a lovely name! I would think your only problem with it could be that it had no noticeable nickname--If you wanted one, that is.

    My daughter's name is Muirenn. It is the older form of Muireann. In Irish Gaelic it is pronounced Meer-in (which is how we pronounce it) while in Scottish Gaelic it is pronounced Murr-in like William Wallace's wife in Braveheart (Muron). It is often Anglicized to Marion. When I was researching the name, I found that there are many women in Irish history and mythology named Muirenn. One in particular story was about a mermaid and her name Muirenn was said to mean 'drawn from the sea'.

    As far as nicknames go, my daughter's is Meercat, given to her by her friends.

    Uisce I would not use as it's also a word used for moonshine in Ireland.

    Clodagh is a river in co. Tipperary. There's the classic Shannon (also a river). Ennis is an island. Liffey is a river which runs through Dublin. There's also Muireann/Muirin, Muirgheal.
