Caoilainn vs. Saoirse vs. Ruarie
Which name do you think is best for our little girl? Middle names would also be appreciated! thanks so much- it is just so hard to pick! - Deirdre and Kevin Sullivan.
The Top Baby Name is...
How do you pronounce them?
Caoilainn is pronounced KAY-lynn
Saoirse is pronounced Seer-Sha
Ruarie is pronounced Roar-ee
I would choose different spellings for Caoilainn and Ruarie if you live in the US. Hardly anyone will be able to pronounce them and it will be a buden for your daughter. Maybe you could use one as a mn. Rory Caoilainn or Rory Saoirse?
I see that you like pure Irish names, but if you live in America, I think she will have trouble growing up with a name that no one can pronounce. Do you like any other Irish names that people will know?
That is true.. I wanted to keep the traditional Irish spellings of the names but I don’t want to make her life too difficult. Thanks for the advice :)
Siobhan, Niamh, Sian, are all traditional Irish names that most people know how to pronounce.
I wrote the 3rd comment..sorry if it sounded harsh at all. The names are really pretty, I just think it might be difficult if people are unfamiliar with them. Here are some other suggestions that may be easier to pronounce:
No it’s fine, I didn’t think it was harsh... I just want honest opinions. I like the names that you suggested! What do you think about Mairead Saoirse? Does it flow?
Mairead Saoirse is a pretty combo. Saoirse Mairead or Mairead Ruarie would work too.
Here are other suggestions:
Roisin is pretty too, but I guess it would be hard to pronounce also. Maybe it could be spelled Rosheen. GL!
I personally really really really like Saoirse. It’s one of my favorite names!
My name’s Deirdre, too! :-D
