I love the name Brendan
ExP loves the name Padhraig

Which do you prefer?

Brendan????? shock Please no!

I'm not entirely sure how you pronounce Padhraig, is it like Patrick or Pawrig or something else? Not keen on either tbh. Plenty of other much nicer Irish (I assume) names.

I don't mind Padhraig, actually. In fact I think I quite like it. I presume it's pronounced like Patrick but with an Irish accent?!

Not at all keen on Brendan.

I like Padraig best, but Brendan is nice too IMO.

I find Padhraig a bit of a minefield, pronunciation-wise.

Neither are my fave Irish names but I prefer Padraig

I always thought Padhraig was pn Porrick but the golfer doesn't seem to pn it that way.

Prefer Padhriag to Brendan anyway.

Neither would be my choice, but I'd have to choose Brendan beacause I know how to pronounce/spell it. No idea how to pronounce Padhraig confused.

They both sound a bit old mannish to me. But if I had to choose one it would be Brendan.

Padhraig - brendan just brings to mind the guy from the Great British Bake Off and he is a bit of an knob smile

Eeek, it's like a toss up between Trevor and Howard.

There are much nicer Irish names.

Brendan if I absolutely had to.

squoosh Wed 10-Oct-12 15:30:25

Padhraig also has a million pronunciations so that would be tiresome.

Paw . . . . .

Seems pretty split leaning towards Padraig! Which ex pronounces par-dric.

Made me laugh with the Trevor and Howard comment!

I like Brendan and I have no idea why (not seen the bake off programme)

SilkieChicken Wed 10-Oct-12 17:34:41

DBIL is Padraig (par-dric here too)

Not Brendan.
