    I loved this segment! I have Grandchildren named Maille, Brehon, Bridie, Maeve and Siobhan, and the only one that’s ever pronounced correctly the first time is Bridie.

    I fell in love with the name Siobhan when I was in HS; wanted that to be my daughter’s name. My husband said we couldn’t use a name he couldn’t spell. My daughter has promised to name her first daughter Siobhan if/when she has one.
    A close friend has a daughter named Saoirse, so haven’t had a problem with that one either. The rest, are going to be a mystery. I need to meet people with those names so I can learn how to use them.

    All my four daughters have Irish names, so we can identify with Saoirse! We’ve had Aislinn called Alison for a whole year by a teacher who thought all the letters were there – and that her mom was just dyslexic, I presume. We’ve had Sinny-add for Sinead, May-reed for
    Mairead and Caitriona, who now lives in England, has given up and is known as Trini, which is often, as you can imagine, pronounced (wrongly) Trinny!
