Yes vs. No

Thinking of the name "Saoirse". It is pronounced Seer-sha. I think it is such a beautiful name but it has obvious pronounciation issues. Just wondering if it’s too much, or worth it because it is just that pretty!

Once a person hears it once they’ll know.
Worth it

I think it’s beautiful. I would spell it differently.. like.. Searsha or Seersha! either way.. even if you use the original spelling it’s beautiful.

I have and always will read Saoirse as "Say-o-earce"

I have seen this name on here before, I know it is the Irish spelling...I just think the pronounciation is too far off from the spelling. I think the baby might have a lot of problems with it.

maybe you could come up with a better way to spell it like siersha or seirsha

I don’t think it’s a beautiful name. This kid will have serious problems with this name it’s entire life. Think about your child instead of yourself, seriously. Will it be worth it when she’s telling you how much she hates her name all the time? At least spell it more "American" cause that’s where we live!!
