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.

Boys.... Ciaran and Cormac I like.

I love maeve but Aoife and Maeve looks wrong. Aoife and Meadhbh looks better, hence suggestion to pick Tara!!

baxtersm · 08/03/2023 21:33

Aoife and Erin. Or Aoife and Meabh

BeetyAxe · 08/03/2023 21:33

Don’t like Aoife and Maeve either, don’t think it flows well.

And Eimear

Aoife and Maeve sounds lovely. I like Conal for a boy.

HollyFern1110 · 08/03/2023 21:37

The only Aoife I know in real life has a sister called Maeve 😁. Their brother is Evan.

Also Roisin is nice ( row sheen - meaning little rose)

Lorcan or Darragh.

Why do they need to match? They'll be individuals, unique people. If I were a twin I'd want a name completely separate from my twin's. I'd be my own person, not one of a set.

Gorgeous 😍

Definitely Meabh (Meave). Also Roisin and Saebh (rhymes with 5). For a boy I like Rory, Sean, Ronan, Oisin, Odhran and Fiona. Also for a girl Brigid is having a renaissance.

I like Aoife and Kian
Love the Aoife and Maeve combo

Zola1 · 08/03/2023 21:50

Aoife and Orlaith sounds nice too!

Daisywithastory · 08/03/2023 21:50

Aoife and Maeve is lovely. I’m Irish and my partner is English. We have ten month old twins and I only ‘won’ on one name so our names are completely different but they really work together so don’t worry about people saying some names are too different to put together!

Rian is another nice boy’s name and I’m not sure it’s been mentioned yet.
