What do you think.

Thank You

Also what do you think of Maeve

Theonlyoneiknow Sat 12-Apr-14 21:25:47

I love Maeve, not so keen on Dermot. But its your thought that matters!

Polonius Sat 12-Apr-14 22:13:05

Are you Irish? I really like it!

Mrswellyboot Sat 12-Apr-14 22:16:19

Yes, Irish

ThePigOfHappiness Sat 12-Apr-14 22:20:04

I prefer the softer sound of Diurmuid
Meadhbh is beautiful. I don't really like it anglicised

Polonius Sat 12-Apr-14 22:20:40

Especially like it then! Not that you can only use your own cultural names, but an Irish name on and Irish kid makes sense, doesn't it?

DramaAlpaca Sat 12-Apr-14 22:25:58

I like Maeve/Meadhbh a lot. Dermot is OK, but prefer Diarmuid.

I hope you don't mind me referring to your other names thread while I'm answering this one. I really like Joseph and have used it myself as a middle name. I think Brendan is a bit old-fashioned but it's a nice name with a retro feel and may be due for a revival.

Mary is much rarer in Ireland now, I only know a couple of young Marys. I'm not fond of Ellen at all, but I've noticed it's becoming popular again.

Dermot and Maeve are fine but they're a bit...............sensible.

mathanxiety Sun 13-Apr-14 06:08:54

Like them both.

Mrswellyboot Sun 13-Apr-14 09:19:45

Squoosh we are very sensible grin

People would expect it from us I think. Even the last baby, they were like 'ah, thought so' with baby name.

MoreSkyThanWeNeed Sun 13-Apr-14 09:21:42

Both good.

What's your last baby's name? <nosy>

stonygreysoil Tue 15-Apr-14 06:41:09

solid. Would go for the irish spelling if living in ireland.

Allalonenow Tue 15-Apr-14 06:51:01

I love Maeve.
Dermot is fine, or how about Declan or Rory?

Mrswellyboot Sat 19-Apr-14 11:03:38

We've shortened the list down to

Dermot Brendan
Joseph Brendan
Brendan Joseph


Maeve Ann
Ellen Mary
Mary Ellen

We have a long Irish surname .. what would you pick ?

sarahquilt Sat 19-Apr-14 12:09:01

My daughter is goung to be Meadbh! love it.

GrassIsSinging Sat 19-Apr-14 12:11:34

Maeve is lovely.

I really dont like Dermot. Hard and dated. Diarmuid is slightly better, but there are much nicer Irish boys names out there.

UriGeller Sat 19-Apr-14 12:15:35

I don't really like Brendan or Dermot but I do love Joseph utterly and completely.

I'd have to say Joseph with Dermot as mn (as long as your surname isn't O'Logical).

Your girls names, ummm, I'd have to blindfold myself and stick a pin in, they all seem of a muchness. Even Maeve doesn't excite me.

MakeTeaNotWar Sat 19-Apr-14 12:15:50

I would have had Meadhbh but got a Tadhg instead!

squoosh Sat 19-Apr-14 17:25:22

Joseph and Ellen are my favourites.

Maeve is yummy. Dermot...erm...isn't, sorry.

Bowlersarm Sat 19-Apr-14 17:27:19

Joseph and Ellen, are lovely.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 19-Apr-14 22:19:45

DH is Brendan , dad Joseph, uncle Dermot !!

LoveVintage Sat 19-Apr-14 22:25:52

DS1 (14) is Joseph. It is my most favourite boy's name in the world ever.

I love Maeve.

DramaAlpaca Sat 19-Apr-14 23:01:18

Joseph Brendan or Maeve Ann.

Dermot makes me think O'Leary, which is a good thing! Joseph is lovely too. I prefer Maeve from your girls names but like Mary too.
