Need help with suggestions naming a sister to my first, [name_u]Adair[/name_u] [name_f]Margaret[/name_f]–due in a few months! We feel we struck gold with [name_u]Adair[/name_u] and are hoping for same magic. Looking for something that is uncommon, doesn’t end in “a” as our last names does, that is phonetic/easy to say (our last name is very challenging), and has some connection to [name_f]Ireland[/name_f] or [name_f]Scotland[/name_f] (loosening this a bit).
Any ideas? Names below that we’re thinking of so far. The no “a” ending is especially challenging. Thank you!
-[name_f]Esme[/name_f] (I know, not exactly phonetic and Scottish connection somewhat a stretch)
-[name_f]Fione[/name_f] (I like but we have nephew [name_u]Finn[/name_u] so might be too close)
-[name_f]Saraid[/name_f]/Seraid (love name, especially second spelling–as don’t love name [name_f]Sara[/name_f]–which I found in ancient Irish history books. Seraid was a queen in Muskerry. The trouble is the pronunciation. I like it said the way its spelled and seems folks with name do pronounce it this was in Aus and [name_f]England[/name_f], but it’s technically Sorid or Suhray.)
-Erraid (Scottish island, but error?)
-[name_f]Mairead[/name_f] (clearly I love the -aid sound. Husband thinks sounds old lady. Also pronunciation issues.)
-[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] but becoming popular in area and husband doesn’t love so probably a “no.”
