We have narrowed down our choices to the following:

Aoife (EE-fa)
Ula (OO-la)

Which one would you go for?

I'd choose Aoife.

I've never heard of Ula, but I quite like it. It's short, neat and pretty.

I like Ula, lovely !

I haven't heard Ula before but I really like it, I know a few Unas but Ula is nicer.

I really like Ula. Ulla is my grandmother's name (which probably means that I'm massively biased... )

Aoifa is nice, I know an adult and a baby Aoife... I also like Chloe.

These are all lovely.

In (slight) preference order:

Aoife - never heard of this name before and would have NO clue how to pronounce it if I saw it written down.

I know a Uaia ( you-ay) and love her name too

I love Ula. I find Aoife a bit passé but I'm Irish and the name is very popular and overused imo.

Ula - although I prefer the spelling Ulla. It's a name that can't be shortened which is a great thing!

Ula...unusual (well, around here anyway) and cute.

Really love that its Celtic meaning is "Sea Jewel" . Who wouldn't want such a beautiful association with their name?

Tough one but Chloe edges it.

I have heard Ula used as a nn for Ursula.

Aoife is my favourite Irish name so I'd pick that.

Ula is gorgeous
