    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

    Another child who will have to spend their lives correcting the pronunciation of their name.

    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!

    How do you know they aren't Irish themselves? I have a traditional Irish name. It's spelt "correctly" and is actually just a *normal* name in that part of the country.
    Just because it's not familiar in this part of the world doesn't mean it shouldn't be used....:

    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.
