I’m sorry I dont like any of these. None of these seem like names. Acadia sounds like the name of a bug.. and also makes me think of an arcade. Ireland is a place, not a name. Carys sounds weird with the s at the end. Carrie or Keri would be better.

Carys is a well known name,of Welsh origin. It is a true name, and means love. I think it is beautiful. Many, many place names are used- Dallas, London, Paris, Adelaide, Asia, Kenya- I see no reason for Ireland to not be included. Those are also places. AND names. Acadia is also a place name. All of these names are legitimate and nice names, in my opinion. Cicada is a bug. Not Acadia

Im sorry I’m also not a fan of these names. Yes lots of places are used as names.. but that doesnt mean every place makes a good name. The other two are just ugly imo, sorry

Carys is a lovely name with nice meaning. Id avoid place names, they are very trendy and low cl[removed]ounding not a good connection.

Sometimes people are just unwilling to have an open mind, I think. As mentioned, many place names are common. No one would have said anything if you had used Sidney, for example. Other place names are not as frequently used, take Sedona, for example. Sedona, Arizona is a name, but not heard as much. Because people do not hear these names as much, they automatically assume it is a "Bad" or "low class" name. Neither assumption is true. If Ireland is meaningful to you, use it! Ireland Baldwin is probably the most famous person with this name. I think her nn is Addie.

My daughter is named Elin. It means ray of light. Lots of people tried to dissuade me to use it- they talked about the Tiger Woods scandal, that it would be mispronounced, and that it sounded like Alien. We loved it, we used it, it is meaningful, and I would have regretted not using it! I could not imagine her with any other name. Ireland Carys or Carys Ireland are both lovely. I am sure you will regret not using Ireland. Acadia is my least favorite out of the three.

who was answering the posts if mom was in labor?

When most people think its low class then obviously she will always be assumed as such and it would go against her. It not being true is your personal belief not the common viewpoint.

I disagree that it is low class, though. And not all share your viewpoint. Thanks for clearing it up, and congrats on the baby, Dad!
