DH and I are expecting DC1 in January. We don't know whether we are expecting a DS or a DD.
We have a girl's name we love but we are struggling a bit with our potential boy's name.
I am Irish but live in London, DH is English and we are keen to reflect our baby's Irish heritage. DH loves the name Conor but I am concered it is a little over used. We both like Donnacha (pr - Don aka) but I am concerned this might be a bit too unusual and am not sure what people will make of it in London.
A friend of mine called her boy Donnacha, and I always thought it looked like a girl's name, for two reasons - "Donna", and the fact that it ends in "a". I came across this thread while researching the origins of the name, and while I agree that it's a lovely name, I wonder whether it might be perceived as girly in England.
