Irish names, Polish Last Name
Posted 17 April 2008 - 09:51 PM
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 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
(I'm horrible at this )

I've also found this awesome spelling of "Abigail" as Abichayil >.<

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'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...

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 Deòiridh ("DOR ee")
Hope these help!
