Baby's name to go with Boyle

I'm struggling to think of boys names (girls names are so much easier) for our first baby - surname is Boyle and we'd like something vaguely Irish/of Irish origin. Any ideas? Thanks :-)

squoosh Tue 13-Jan-15 14:29:09

Do you have any names on your list at all?

Not Lance.

<sorry>

James is nice?

MovingOnUpMovingOnOut Tue 13-Jan-15 14:31:27

Seamus is better than James if you want Irish though.

Joseph Boyle

Or what about Maolsheachlann or Toirdhealbhach. Can't see any problems arising with those names.

Oh squoosh that just gave me a well needed chuckle!

Patrick or the Irish spelling of the same.

JBoyle Tue 13-Jan-15 14:51:58

He he - thanks!! The spellings can be a bit tricky can't they?!

I know a Callum and an Aaron with that surname

Blanketontheground Tue 13-Jan-15 15:04:03

I second cormac. It's a name I've only recently heard as there's one in my daughters play group. Irish, unusual but not odd and lovely.

Purplehonesty Tue 13-Jan-15 15:05:01

Doyle.

Or Cameron

Or surname is a mc scottish one and we told everyone we were naming ds something like Donald McDonald - most people were very polite and said ooh how nice! Only my mum snorted.

Not Jimmy.

Definitely not Ryall though.

Lance Boyle would be brilliant, in a "Boy Named Sue" character-building kind of way.

RJnomore Tue 13-Jan-15 19:59:08

Frankie.

It has the added advantage of being unisex.

Many thanks all for these suggestions - definitely some food for thought here. I am now leaning towards more classic and less Irish - am worried about the spellings...
