I LOVE traditional Irish names as well and we plan on using one for this baby. What I did was go through names myself and make a list and then had dh pick his favs from my list. He didn't like all the ones I did but he did love 3 from my girl list and 4 from my boy list. Maybe you could try that. Or use your favorite for the first name and his favorite for the middle name. There's a lot of traditional Irish names that aren't as "out there" and hard to pronounce as some others that he might actually like. (Dh automatically vetoed anything he couldn't pronounce even after I told him how to say it. )[/b]
Ugh. DF's problem is that he cannot spell. He's been trying to improve that so he actually goes back and corrects everything he misspells after he's done writing something (even a grocery list). But now he's getting into "what things look like in English" and refuses to spell things correctly in Irish (which is a sore spot with me because I spoke Irish as a child!). I mean, he suggested spelling Siobhan "Shavonne", which might sound okay to a lot of Americans, but looks awful to me.

Yeah ... he doesn't like any from my list and I don't like any from his (except Anastasia ... I might be convinced to use it as a middle name). The only one I like that he would consider is Eithne (but he says only if I spell it ENYA ).

Thanks ... I like a couple of them but he passed over all of those when he was looking. The ones like Rachel, Danielle, etc he actually said he hated. He is just so difficult. I mean ... I don't see anything his have in common except that he likes S as a first initial.
