My best friend's name is Emmaly - it suits her perfectly
Names don't "suit" people. You're just so used to knowing them as that name that you can't fathom any other name in its place. It's just familiarity.
A girl at work just called her son Eoin ... I thought it was pronounced Ian but it's actually Owen
That's traditional Irish
I always thought Eoin was pronounced Ian too!
What are everyone's thoughts on Michael Phelp's kid's name...Boomer. It's spelled correctly which is nice but it just makes me think of a kangaroo!
I love Gaelic names. Bugger to pronounce but love them. Saoirse, Niamh, and Siobhan are pretty common.
It's one thing to give you kid a cultural / ethnic name, it's another to make up a work or bastardised the spelling.
Comparing Eoin and Jaxon is apples and bananas IMO.
