Irish Boy’s Name Help!
26

ImStayingInside ·10/10/2021 22:18

My DH is Irish, but we live in England.
He would really like an Irish first name for our baby due in January, we are leaving the sex as a surprise til they’re born, so need a boy and girl name.
We have a girl’s name we love, but are really struggling with a boy’s name …
We have a typical Irish Mc surname if that helps!

I really like Rory or Ruairi (unless your surname is Lyons, but you say it's a Mc name, so should be fine!)
I also like Rian and Liam.
