my friend really likes these names but are they a bit feminine, especially if you are living in england and not ireland?
oh and what about Cillian (its pronounced killian)
The last one is too like cereal which is what kid would be called by all nad sundry.
First one would be used with 'nancy'
and colman (reminded me of mustard)
Clancy is okish but agree with moondog. I read that as Cereal at first glance.
I do like Cillian though.
Clancey is a mamma'a boy's name
its pronounced karul not cereal!
Don't like Colman. Do like Colm.
not unless was cruel sadist
What IS it with people and messed up names?
Nappy - I thought you were in Ireland? The country where we don't do wacko names! Just nice Irish ones. Cillian is lovely. Push her for Cillian.
Clancy is just wrong
Cearul is just plain wrong.
no im not in ireland!! im in the midlands in england.
i think she was worried about it being related to the word kill. what do you think?
Where did I have it in my head that you were Irish?
Just think Cillian Murphy.
Anywho - that's a good point.
But who did that skit where ANY name could be made fun of?
Its just a horrible name, why not name the poor child something normal
Message withdrawn at poster's request.
she likes Feidhelm too but again unsure cos of it being related to failing?
think she puts too much though tbh
Is she on drugs?
What about Connor or Ciaran or Calum or Declan or any of the other nice, normal Irish names?
I personally wouldn't choose those names
I'll ask this while I'm on here because I've been wondering for a while:
You know the name Kai which is v popular at the moment, is that pronounced to rhyme with May or Eye? And where did it come from?
Isn't the stupid cop from the Simpsons calle Clancy?
she doesn't like those cos they are widely used over here too. wants something that really says i'm irish i think. (her mil is irish)
well i've posted all the irish names i like on a thread so i can print it off and show her. hope she likes them!!
it rhymes with eye and comes from germany, sweden and hawaii.
