My daughter's name is Moira.. we were going to name our newest little one Maeve or Maude, originally. My name is Fiona.. our family has a history of using Gaelic names (we being from Irish/Welsh decent).

I liked Ailis (Eye-lish) and there is a little girl in my Mommy and Me group whose name is Ailis.. The problem you want to stay away from, tho, is that no one can correctly pronounce Moira or Ailis and it's hard for the girls. I remember when no one could spell or pronounce my name, correctly. Its kind of embarrassing.
