We are having such a hard time agreeing on names. Both of us being Irish, originally I did want typical Irish names. Now, after going through loads of them, I hate them all. Surname being 'McKenna' I'm finding is so difficult to find first names that flow haha.

I personally like Leyton and Tait. My partner likes Tommy and Patrick (no way is that happening)

Anyone want to throw some suggestions at me? We both have big families, which is a pain. Made up of mainly boys.

Thanks in advance.

Ottilie, I know. It took me years to figure out who was who as they were totally identical. The weird thing is they are both really sorted, confident people! (now grown up) and certainly don't live in each other's pockets but have a good friendship. It made me realise that names are important but not THAT important.

I like your partners idea of Tom and Patrick.

Sorry, I just had to comment: Alex and Alec? Dear fucking lord. I imagine every single conversation goes
'oh, you two are twins'
'yes'
'what are your names?'
'Alex and Alec'
'YOU'RE BOTH CALLED ALEX??' 'No, I'm AlecSSS, he's AlecKK.'

Over and over and over again. My god.

You need to for Irish but different irish.

Setanta, Rohan, Ruain, Conal, Turlough, Daire, Art, Shaine.

grin about Leyton. I live v near there and it is as described. ^
Asda, B&Q, TK Maxx and lots of fried chicken shops.
I know identical twin boys called Alex and Alec. So, you can surely do better than that!
I still think Cillian is brilliant.
Cillian Patrick McKenna

I know twin boys called Lewis and Flynn, think those names go well together.

Maybe you should take a trip to Leyton, then see if yoi still want to call your son that! It's not cool & edgy like Brooklyn, it's just rough & a bit boring.

Torin and Rory.

Theironfistofarkus Wed 03-Jul-13 21:05:16

Declan and Rory?

I think Cian and Jude go perfectly. Or Cian and Elliott.

Her fathers country. She is not called harlow!

MerryMarigold Wed 03-Jul-13 18:48:10

actually Mulligan McKenna may be a bit much! Shame. Mull is a great nickname.
My dd is named after a place in her country. Is there any place name you could use? Donnie McKenna?

@MerryMarigold Mulligan is quite nice. I like Dylan James too. But we've recently had a Ryan James in the family. So now I'm not keen on James. Oh deary me haha. Stress stress

MerryMarigold Wed 03-Jul-13 18:15:28

Dylan James

MerryMarigold Wed 03-Jul-13 18:14:06

I know a Mulligan which is an awesome name.

Lulu90 Wed 03-Jul-13 17:06:19

@Littlecherublegs I love Hayden and Cian (also like Keelan). Ronan isn't too bad either. Don't really like any other the other. Have a Louis and Harry. I love Harrison but it's out of the question because of Harry. My partner loves Joe. I don't.

@forevergreek Rory isn't too bad
