We don't know what we're having!

DH is Irish and would really like an Irish name. Aoife is my standout favourite, but then some of my other likes (Charlotte, Helen, Rose) don't match.

I like old fashioned Irish uncle names (James, Joseph, Vincent), but not sure if they match Aoife... Other boys' contenders are Aidan, Conn and Eoghan.

Kiefer? Sorry Grin

Personally I think I'd go for two Irish names.

I like Eoin too but I feel in combination with Aoife there's so many vowels!

Niamh would have been a strong contender but we have a niece!

Quinn is a lovely pairing and at least they won't both have to spend their whole life spelling their name out to people

I really like Ciaran- it's on the list.
Aine and Aoife... too matchy?

I love the name Maeve (might be biased 😉). Getting very popular in England and Wales now which I have to say I find a bit irritating 😳

If it’s a boy, I’d go with Donnacha. (Though people probably would find it too difficult to pronounce outside of Ireland(.
if a girl, I’d go with Caoimhe.
