Hi, I'm pregnant with my first and we found out we're having a girl. I love the name Niamh (pronounced neeve) but my mum HATES it! Trying not to let her put us off the name but would appreciate your thoughts please...?
Also wondering will my daughter hate me in later life for giving her a name she'll probably always have to spell out to people because it's unusual?
I thought it was quite popular these days - am pretty sure it was well inside the top 100 for girls in England/Wales last year? The spelling shouldn't be too much of an issue if it's becoming a familiar and commonly-used name over here.
I do have a colleague who spells it Neave, I don't think that's as nice though!
