I saw these both in books I recently read....

I've fallen in love with Saffron, but I don't know how it would work in real life. What do you think...

Nyamh Rose is one I would actually consider using. What do you think?

I think you might be the first person to agree with about Saffron. Would you use it in real life?

I've been pronouncing it like Niamh (neev)

But I'm not sure if that's correct or not. I haven't been able to find the spelling with the 'y' on any sites....

I wasnt sure how to pronounce it either but I found it on babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com which I go to for everything pronunciation wise, its one of the few sites Ive found that has pronunciations...and you are saying it right (neev) but I'm not a fan of Irish names, at least not their Irish spellings, since they are pronounced so differently from the way it should be in the English language. I would maybe like it if it were spelled Neve like Neve Campbell

The site that I found says that Niamh is pronounced like Neve or Nieve. You may not be able to find Nyamh, because it doesn't exist. Did you change the spelling yourself? I actually like the spelling better with a Y, but it makes it more confusing to know the correct pronunciation.

No, that is how it was spelt in the book I read.

Urgh. What a hard question. I made up my mind to use Journey. Maybe I'll go along with Saffron. But to be honest...? I don't think I'd use it unless i had like 6 kids and run out of names.

I really like Saffron too, it's a beautiful name. I prefer Sapphire though, it's so classy and beautiful and not too popular (yet). I also love Niamh Rose, I could see myself using it one day.

I would love to use the combo Saffron Rose...except for the fact that my name is Rose (it makes such a good middle name though...)
