Message:
I am having a hard time finding some names, I love Irish names but have a very Polish last name.
My last name is Kolva, but I love the name Shauna Ryanne (Does this even sound okay?) and I can't find ANY Irish boys names that I really like.

I don't much like the sound of Shauna Kolva. Some alternatives for girls would be:

Ryan Kolva
Riley Kolva
Bridget Kolva
Teagan Kolva

For boys, I like:

Aiden Kolva
Bradan Kolva
Cillian Kolva
Dillon Kolva

I prefer Shannon Ryanne. Brigid Ryanne, Aisling (ash-ling) Ryanne, Sinéad (she-nayd) Ryanne, Bevin Ryanne are nice too.

For boys, I like Kian/Cian, Séan, Séamus, Angus, Éamon (ay-mun), Brendan.

I love Shannon Ryanne Kolva, it sounds beautiful :lol: As for a boy, the very first that came to mind was Declan Kolva.

The more and more I've thought about Shauna Ryanne, it doesn't sound right.
I have also never been a fan of the name Shannon.
I have put thought into Aisling, but that doesnt work with my last name either. I can't find a middle name that would allow Aisling and Kolva to flow together.

As far as progress with boys names, I've come up with
Connor Matthew
Liam Riley

(I'm horrible at this :lol:)

Aisling Irene Kolva

Yea, I like Liam Riley and Connor Matthew. I might change the names around though.
I've also found this awesome spelling of "Abigail" as Abichayil >.<
Oh this is so hard. I'm glad I'm only having one LOL

Ack! I can't believe I haven't posted here. Sorry about that, Mandi.
Kate's suggestion of Aisling is nice, but I like the spelling better as Aislinn.

I'm not sure just how Gaelic you'd like to go, but here are a few great Gaelic names:

Aithne (pr: "EN ya"; it can also be spelled Eithne) - means "Kernel; nut"
Breena (pr: "BREE nah") - means "A Welsh river name"; Bree is a cute and easy nickname that most Americans can pronounce.
Aoibheann (pr: "EEV uhn") - means "Pleasant; beautiful"
Bridget (pr: "BRIJ it") - means "The exalted one"; it's a variant of Bríghid (pr: "breed")
Alana - means "Rock"
Bedelia (pr: "beh DEEL ee ah") - means "Power, strength"
Caitlín - means "pure"
Béibhinn (pr: "be VEEN") - means "Fair lady"
Caoilfhinn (pr: "KAY lin") - means "Slender and fair"
Breanna (pr: "bree ANN ah") - means "Noble, strong, virtuous; hill"; the nickname Brea is kind of cute and easy for Americans to pronounce.
Caoimhe (pr: "KEEV ah") - means "Gentleness; beauty"
Catríona (pr: "ka TREE na") - means "pure"
Ciara (pr: "KEER ah") - means "Dark"
Colleen - means "Young female; girl"
Eibhlín (pr: "i LEEN"; "EV leen"; or "AYV leen") - a form of Aveline
Imogen (pr: "IM oh jen") - means "Maiden"
Deirdre (pr: "DEER dree") - means "sorrow, grief"
Erin - means "From Ireland"
Deòiridh (pr: "DOR ee") - means "Pilgrim"
Liadán (pr: "LEE dan") - means "Grey lady, grey poet"
Diorbhail (pr: "DER vil") - means "A pledge"
Enya (pr: "EN yah") - means "kernel, nut"
Fiona (pr: "fee O nah") - means "Fair, white, beautiful"
Maeve (pr: "MAYV") - means "Intoxicating"
Niamh (pr: "neev") - means "Radiance; brightness"
Lindsey - means "dark lake"
Máirín (pr: "MAUR een") diminutive of Máire - means "Irish form of Mary - bitter"
Marsaili (pr: "mar SAY lee" or "mar SAL ee") - means "pearl"
Orlaith (pr: "OR la") - means "Golden lady"
Morrigan (pr: "mor REE gan") - means "Great queen; nightmare queen"
Muireann (pr: "moo eer ahn") - means "White sea"
Muadhnait (pr: "mooy naht") - means "Little noble one"
Muirgheal (pr: "mur yahl") - means "Bright as the sea"

I wouldn't use any of the Mac or Mc names that so very popular mainly because the Mac/Mc part of the name literally means "Son of". Not very fitting for a daughter, but that's just my opinion.

I prefer that spelling as well over Ashling.
I'm assuming that Gaelic names are the same as Irish, cause those look somewhat familiar from the site I was looking at.
Thanks SO much for the meanings too! That will be a large part of the name, what it means

I love the name Ciara, but prefer the spelling Caera. I might even go with Keira, I'm not sure.
I can't find a middle name that flows the two names together though...

Yes, Gaelic is the old language of Ireland and parts of Scotland. So most of the names I posted are considered very Irish since they're of Gaelic origin.

Hmm.. well if your not going to use Ciara, then I'd use Keira (it's a rather common spelling of the name, recently popularized by the actress Keira Knightly).

Keira Imogen
Keira Maeve
Keira Deòiridh ("DOR ee")
Keira Bridget
Keira Morrigan
Keira Morgan

Hope these help!

Keira Sianna (pr: "SHAWN ah"; means "God is gracious")
Keira Sinéad (pr: "shih NADE" ; means "God is gracious")
Keira Sorcha (pr: "SOR ah ka" or "SURK ha"; means "Brightness, light")
Keira Tuilelaith (pr: "TIL ah lah"; means "Abundance, lady, princess")
