I really love girls names with a silent o in them like

Phoebe
Aoife
Saoirse

Any further suggestions for silent o's?

There's a whole gamut of Irish names to choose from, as your own list indicates.

I'd maybe do a google on them.

Can't think of any others immediately but will return to the thread if I do. smile

I don't know if those irish os are silent though! My dc1 laughed at me for pronouncing phairc 'fark' today. Because I was applying English rules to Irish.

although oi often go together so I think they are silent. Ignore me.

Oenone? Phoenix? Outside of Irish names, this one is hard!
