    Realistically how often do people say full names out loud!

    Sadie Mary *surname* I think would be fine!!!

    My DS2 has a middle name that doesn't flow as nicely as my DS1 first and middle name but it has huge meaning to me do I used it!!!

    I think the importance of passing on the name trumps it doesn't sound 'quite right' with Sadie!

    I don't like Eilish purely based on the fact I have NO idea how to pronounce it and wouldn't want to burden my children with a name that is constantly mispronounced, they have to spell etc etc

    I know a Maire from Scotland and she pronounces it Ma-ree.

    I like Eilish, and think Eilish Maire sounds lovely.

    I like Eilish. It's really not that hard to pronounce IMO. It's fairly phonetic. it's a really pretty name. People manage to pronounce Eileen and its similar to that.

    Sadie reminds me of Sadie the cleaning lady :-/ Even if it didn't, I don't like the name itself anyway.
