    I have a very common name that's even the same name as a famous character. I still have to spell it all the time. Go with Aoife if you like it!

    My cousin's mane is Caoimhe, pronounced Keeva... Her mum was born and raised in Northern Ireland. Must ask her whether she chose a different pronunciation or if it's how they say it where she's from..?

    I have loved this name for a good 10 years and I'm not Irish!

    It is a beautiful name, people will learn to say and spell it.

    Go for it, it's gorgeous!

    I have heard of the name as my husband is Irish.

    My kids all have Irish names. And I have to spell them all the time.

    Yes, this is true, but it usually slight and not turning it into a different name.

    She probably heard it that way. As i said, it is the Anglicised version (Northern Ireland would be very Anglicised). The traditional Gaelic way is Kwee-va.

    I wasn't saying it was. Just an observation. Same as everywhere - "Castle" NSW, "Castle" Victoria etc.
