I quite like Seoirse for a boy, I met one a few weeks ago but it doesn't seem to be very common anymore, would it get confused with Saoirse? Someone I work with said there were two in his class at school but he's quite a bit older than me! Pronounciation: shor-sheh, it's the "Irish version" of George :P Opinions?
Yeah, I'm in Ireland and I don't recall meeting one of these. I think, if I'm reading it right it'd be pronounced very like georgia. shorgia? So, to my ear it sounds feminine.......... but I don't know if that matters. elliot and noah and finn sound quite feminine sounding to my ear.
I like Georgie! That'd be cute. Are you looking for an Irish name? or does George have any significance ?
I've always heard Shore-sheh/Shorsha that sort of thing, but the Sh sound at the start isn't too harsh, it's more soft like an S? I don't know how to explain it better haha. There isn't really any significance with George, I'm still in the TTC stage and just looking at different names so I have a shortlist of sorts
I didn't think it sounded feminine, but maybe it was because the only face I've been able to put the name to was a drunken student rugby player type who seemed quite macho! I worried about the similarity to Saoirse though, and seeing it written down people could assume I'd just spelt Saoirse wrong or something :p
