Congratulations on your twins! How excited you must be!
Sorry, but I feel that both Niamh and Maebh would be misspelt and mispronouced frequently which may cause frustration to your twins. Iona sounds pretty but do you think it also sounds a little like "I own her"? Best of luck!

Do you live in Ireland? If you do the spelling of the names probably won’t be an issue. If you don’t it might be something to consider. You both have very irish names so you would know if it will be a problem or not.

Holy Wierd. I’m not Irish, but some more common Irish names I know of are Siobhan, Kaelin, Shayla, or Keely and they won’t get mispronounced. Iona is ok- definitely the best of the bunch.
