Irish Baby Names List
Irish names are pretty popular these days, and it’s become a big trend for Americans with roots in Ireland to choose Gaelic names for their babies. Liam has been at the top of the Irish baby names list for a few years now. However, many Irish names are tough to pronounce for foreigners.
Having an Irish name in the US is an experience! Just ask my son Conor. His name may not be difficult to pronounce but the poor child is forever seeing his name misspelled by teachers, even though it’s right in front of them, and the poor baby has never had so much as a key chain with his name on it.
Being Irish myself, I’ve got plenty of friends living over here in the US with notoriously tricky names to pronounce and spell, people aren’t used to seeing and hearing them on a daily basis. I’ve witnessed the eye rolls and frustration when every vowel and consonant is dragged out, twisted and bastardized on the Starbucks line.
