Baby names

We have been spending some time on the Baby Names of Ireland website. Let me know what you think of the list so far.... Boy Names Brendan Sean Seamus Ronan Conan (Dave's pick - I voted off the list) Padriac (my pick - Dave voted off) Girl Names Brigid Ciara Mairead Dierdre Siobhan (Dave consistently votes off the list) We will need two of each until we find out what we have here.


  • I LOVE Brendan and Brigid.

    Another Irish name I love is Liam.

    I just love Irish names!

  • I love them all, except for Conan (too closely associated with Conan O'Brien). Like Maureen, I am crazy about the name Liam and Irish names in general (in fact, one of my daughters has Maureen as a middle name!)

    Your own name, "Mary," is the most beautiful name there is! Your maiden name would also make an EXCELLENT first name for a boy.

  • I love most of them, too, though am less fond of Conan and Ronan (and can you imagine naming twin boys as such? They'd sound like a comedy team.)

    I also love Liam, and Aidan (I've said for the last few years that if we ever have a boy, he's an Aidan.)

    For girls, I also like Maeve.

  • Ooh, I love Aiden. And Sean too.

    Then for girls there is Maureen, Eileen, Colleen, Aileen . . .

    Growing up, my two sisters and I were known as the '3 eens.'

    Have you read Fritz's book on Brendan the Navigator? If not, check your library!

  • We just read Fritz's book this past fall! Loved it!

  • We did Fritz's book this fall as well. He started our study of explorers.

    How about Brigid Claire? Brendan Patrick?

    I also like Claire Regina.

    Dave told me to stop with the girl names and to think BOY!

  • I love Brigid Claire, Mary Ellen. Of course, there are two to name, aren't there?? :-)

  • Brendan is a great name... we chose it for our 6th baby who was born on Oct. 17th. Brendan Daniel. The light of our lives. Named for Brendan the Navigator.

  • I love Liam too, that was my top choice for my Brendan, but dh vetoed it. Brendan wasn't my first choice but I love it now.
    You will love the name no matter what you pick.
    Is Ciara Irish?-sounds Italian, though it's very pretty. My other Irish favorites are Ailish(sp?) & Fiona. God Bless your baby whatever you name her/him. I love your blog too. I found it through a CCM link.
