Hi there
Due date approaching and still undecided. Would like Irish names so have kind of narrowed it down to a boy- Callum and a girl- Teagan
(Any other suggestions would be great!)

But what we are really stuck on is the middle names. any suggestions????
TIA

We have some Irish names as DP is Irish...but also some English and welsh ( my side of family.

Our Irish ones are:

Shannon
Callum
Declan
Keenan
Aidan
Kyran
Shay

Our Callum is Callum Jake.

Good luck!

I adore Irish names smile

Teagan was on our list - I loved Teagan Rose. Our top Runner was Caitlin Eve, but we called DD Naomi Caitlin in the end (obv Naomi is not irish at all lol)

As for a boy, our top runner was Declan Issac but I adore Callum! I love Callum Jake (as suggested by Idobelieve)

Other ideas :

Callum James
Callum Samuel

Teagan Jessica
Teagan Jade

Good luck with the birth and new baby when he/she arrives smile

Callum is Gaelic..originally scottish i think...but a irish saint bought the name to Ireland and so it became popular there...thats why its known as both.

thanks idobelieve- read that somewhere too!

DH loves Aoife and Oisin. I dont want to go as "traditional" irish as different spellings.
And i really like the idea of Fionn or Finlay or Finn as the middle name- short, 1 syllable and will go with our surname.

Oh you have re-ignited an old regret (although I doubt very much that you can re-ignite a regret, but nevermind)...

DD2 is Teagan and we completely forgot to give her a middle name < div emoticon> (well, it was so much hard work deciding on her first name, right before the registry office appointment, that when the registrar asked us for a middle name, an awkward silence filled the room: we had forgotten to chose one).

Will follow thread with interest (and bitterness wink)

LittleRascal Tue 23-Jun-09 18:57:27

regina- wink!what do people shorten your DD2 to? I love this name!!

blinks- cant do faye or ray but SO close to what I am looking for!!
this is getting exciting!

She mainly is Teags and Teagy. I call her Teagy Boo, and TeagTeag when she was a baby (my dad misunderstood and has been calling her TicTic for 3 years now smile). Her dad calls her The Steag, as a reference to his hero wink. Some of my mates call her The Teagster, which is quite funny.

One thing that really annoy me though is when people call her Teagunnn. I am forever correcting the ils and calling her TeagAn in front of them.

But great feedback from everyone in general. it's a great unusual name without it being too FIfitrixibelle-y, if you see what I mean.

LittleRascal Tue 23-Jun-09 20:07:22

grin at your dad!!!
I agree!!
