Edwin and Stanley I like. Conal reminds me of colon too. Not especially keen on the girls names. Think Keziah sounds nicer than it looks, iyswim.
Only just discovered this whole baby names thread. I could be here all night wittering on about names. grin

Well, I am a Siobhán and I have always loved the name. It feels right at any age, and is about due a revival I think.

I have a nephew called Conall and love the name.

Conall here in Ireland is pronounced Con - ull not Cone-ull by the way ...

Which did you have in mind?

cheesesarnie Sun 30-Aug-09 00:52:44

Edwin, great name. Old fashioned but not stuffy.
Edwyn Collins is amazing.
Can also be Ted, Teddy, Ed, Eddie. and - er-Winnie!

Hi thanks for all your interesting comments - admit i am suprised that the reaction was more positive than negative, especially for Siobhan. Agree it is good for any age - sorry can't find the fada on here
Conal pronounced Conn - ull as other poster said.
Edwin - Ned as nn
Keziah - Kizzy as nn
Keturah - pronounced Ke tyur ahh. Kitty as nn

keturah-I was at school with oneand it always seemed an odd name-I still think so.
keziah-don't like
siobhan only if Irish connections
Stanley-I see an elderly ,overweight man.

Sorry-Edwin and Keziah are the best of the lot.

I like Keziah best, there is one in DS2's Y1 class (pronounced KEH-zee-ah). I thought it was a made-up name blush until I found one in my own family tree (is it Biblical?).

I like Stanley best of the boys.
Not keen on the others; Siobhan sounds nice but the spelling makes no sense for English speakers.

Keziah is one of Job's daughters in the Bible. Nice name. A friend's daughter is called Keziah, Kezzy for short & is very cool. (She is 4)
