Lacking inspiration. Looking for something Celtic/Irish but not necessarily “as Gaeilge” and not as common as Aoife/Sadhbh/Caoimhe etc.

Would be a sister to Iseult and Aifric, so something along those lines would be helpful. smile

LOVE Aedamair, but unfortunately my sister used it before I could. I will never forgive her.

Like Siún, but last name is far too similar. Not a huge fan of Clodagh or Fraoch.

You can try Eleri, not Irish but still celtic (Pronounced El-airy)

Pity! I really like your style.

What about Olwen. Welsh for white footprint i think.

Is Siobhradh / Siofra too popular?
I think it sounds too obviously of the moment next to your girls' names.

Im thinking. This is challenging in an interesting way.

Foolish1 Fri 23-Feb-18 20:11:33

But if you are Irish why would you want a Welsh name?

CharisMater Fri 23-Feb-18 20:45:25

Well OP said celtic, and Iseult and Aifric aren't the typical as gaelige fare

Aifric is a very Irish name. There used to be a teen TV show as Gaeilge called Aifric - named after the main character. I know of a couple now in primary schools.

Eleri isn't pronounced El-airy. It is pronounced El Erry.
