I couldn't let this sunny St. Patrick's Day slide on by without a post on some of my most favorite names, Irish names! I've got Irish music playing (channel 933 if you have Comcast, sounds of the season channel!) and Irish Soda Bread right out of the oven (I hope someday for smell-o-vision, I could share how heavenly is smells in here!) So lets talk Irish. Conas ata tu? Ok, that's all I know how to say in Irish, it means "how are you?" I'll get back to names.
Some Irish names are ones we hear all the time these days, very popular in the US. Here are a few of those, maybe you didn't know they were Irish?
So those are some nice Irish names, but I'm kind of a name nerd (ya think?) and I like love the more, well, interesting ones. Not all of these are suited for first first names here in the US, because no one will ever know how to pronounce or spell them, and you don't want that sort of trouble for your kiddo. But that doesn't mean they are super cool names! Here's my faves:
So many good names! See what I mean though, some of those are pretty tricky to figure out how to pronounce! For example, Saoirse is "seer-sha" and Maire is "My-ree." Both beautiful names, but maybe as a middle name, yes?
Did I miss any of your favorite Irish names? Let me know!
