i was wondereing if anyone knows some other irish names that practically no one has in the u.s.
one that i really like is the girl from atonement.
her name is saorise pronounced (seer-shu)
any other ideas?|||You mean names in the Irish language, Gaeilge. This is why they sound so different from the way they look to an English speaker.
I personally like the name Bl谩thnaid for a female although some people from other countries find it difficult to pronounce. I would pronounce it "Blah-nid" but this could differ depending on your accent. The name comes from the Irish word bl谩th meaning flower. Some say it's the Irish language equivalent to Florence.

|||Niamh (NEE_uv) is pretty rare. So is Mairead (muh-RADE). Cillin (KILL-een) is good for boys, as is Dara (sounds like it's spelled in this case, though if you really want a tough spelling it's easy enough to find). Caitlin is nice if you pronounce it the actual Irish way, which is more like cawt-LEEN than KATE-lin. |||Mair茅ad (mawr-ade)
Oh, and it's spelled Saoirse :)|||bridget. unlike saorise (which sounds nothing like seer-shu) people will pronounce it properly for the rest of her life.
