It's just popped into my head! We've actually settled on Fiadh but just so pass the time whilst on a nightshfit I'd like to know people's opinions 😊

I'd stick with Fiadh, it's gorgeous.

Morag sounds very harsh to me, not a fan.

nancy75 Mon 12-Mar-18 00:26:17

It’s one of the few names that makes me instantly say no. I think it’s the ag sound at the end, it’s just not nice.
How do you pronounce Fiadh? I’ve not seen that name before

CoffeeChocolateWine Mon 12-Mar-18 00:32:42

Really ugly name. Fiadh is much nicer.

MissMoodyMoo Mon 12-Mar-18 00:36:11

Fiadh is definitely the name we're going with I'm just having a nosey about other names lol

Pronounced fee-ah

Oh! I'm surprised at the other comments! I love it!!

AnyaMoondial Mon 12-Mar-18 01:34:49

I love it! It is really strong and sounds clean and honest to me.

It stands out against a lot of "a" and "y/ie " ending names.

GayAllen Mon 12-Mar-18 01:46:14

It has an ugly sound.

Pemba Mon 12-Mar-18 02:04:39

I agree about the ag sound being harsh.

HoppingPavlova Mon 12-Mar-18 02:13:36

Sounds harsh but also is a nice strong name.

SuperBeagle Mon 12-Mar-18 02:28:53

Fiadh is much better.

Morag is awful.

Thistlebelle Mon 12-Mar-18 02:38:55

Fiadh is lovely but I think Morag is a great name.

We would have had it on our list but it doesn’t with our surname.

Morag is so cute to me very traditionally Scottish and I like older names on babies - it's coming back into fashion

EnlightenedPorkRind Mon 12-Mar-18 02:47:09

I think Morag is a great name. I don't think it sounds harsh at all. Every Morag I've known has been a lovely person.

DiegoMadonna Mon 12-Mar-18 02:49:23

It was the name of a cow on a Saturday morning TV show in the 90s. That's forever how I'll remember it grin

I like it.

SandysMam Mon 12-Mar-18 07:51:06

It reminds me too much of the word Hag! Fidah is beautiful.

SandysMam Mon 12-Mar-18 07:52:06

Or Fiadh blush

KochabRising Mon 12-Mar-18 07:52:38

I really like morag

OliviaStabler Mon 12-Mar-18 07:57:10

Morag is an ugly name.

expatinscotland Mon 12-Mar-18 07:59:43

It's only pretty when Scottish people say it (or possibly Irish people, I don't know), so for that reason, I'd go with Fiadh.

elQuintoConyo Mon 12-Mar-18 08:00:06

Love Morag after having first heard it on The High Road back in the 80s <old gimmer alert>

Strong, not many around, not flighty and unsubstantial like so many other girls' names.

bridgetreilly Mon 12-Mar-18 09:26:16

Katie Morag!

I like it, and I like Aggie as a nn.

Glumglowworm Mon 12-Mar-18 10:50:15

I really like Morag

Like PP my first thought was Katie Morag

mamahanji Mon 12-Mar-18 11:10:26

Morag is quite witchy to me but I absolutely love it! Fiadh is gorgeous too
