We both like Irish names but a lot of them are really difficult to pronounce/spell. If we were having a girl we love the name Aoife (pronounced Eef-ah) but I would probably never actually use it because it's not common in the states and nearly impossible to pronounce. I gravitate toward more traditional names whereas Patrick is more apt to find something unusual. I like the idea of a name that is uncommon but definitely a known name, which is not as easy as it sounds!
I was telling my friend Gabi about our dilemma and she sent me over this hilarious clip from an old Friends episode. So funny and true-- we've even tossed around some of those same names!
Do you like your name? For those who have been there, how did you narrow down your list of names and come to agreement? What are your favorite names?
