Need help with a boy name! We want them to blend well with the names of our other boys which are William (Liam) Jack and Eoghan Henry. We would like to keep it within the Irish, Scottish, English realm. Any ideas? (Can’t do Killian because that is our dog’s name–smile emoticon–)
Fans offered up the following suggestions on our page:
I am loving all these names. My husband offered up Meallan and we have considered Conall for a middle name. We just haven’t found anything definite yet.
Okay… well, some of those suggestions were great!!! They gave a lot of classic, mostly Celtic names that makes a good bank you can draw from. However, I’d advise against Meallan Conall– it sounds like “melancholy”. See, sometimes we really like the sound of something and it’s because it’s familiar to us, even if it’s not conscious how or why. I think this is one of those instances. You’re familiar with the word melancholy and the combo created a flow that just makes sense, but it isn’t all that auspicious. Here are a few of my suggestions, and please keep us updated! I like your style and am curious what you select, as I’m sure the fans are as well.
