10 Unusual Irish Girls Names For Summer Babies
We have a lot of grá for the Irish baby names around these parts.
Of course, there can often be a bit of argy-bargy about spellings and pronunciations (I've done my best here, but ya know... I'm only human, and I learned a bastardised mix of Leinster and Munster Irish). I particularly enjoy when the proud owners of babies with unusual Irish monikers find their own spelling or pronunciation corrected by total strangers as is frequently the case for friends of mine. I have a bump to name currently and am definitely considering an Irish name this time around, though The Man thinks his last name doesn't work with Irish names. I am inclined to direct him to the nearest cliff and tell him to do the old run and jump. At seven months pregnant I definitely feel that I've earned the right to call the bump whatever I damn well like. Though when I proposed the Celtic name Isla pronounced Eye-la, he replied in mocking tones sure, "we can name the baby Isla White..."
Maybe he has a point...
