How do ya'll feel about naming a sib set Ireland and Israel?

SK. November 30th, 2008 05:07 PM

I personaly wouldnt do it, but I wouldnt say its completely out there.
Theres been worse sib-sets.

Merolia November 30th, 2008 06:41 PM

How cute! The next ones could be Iceland, Indonesia, India and Iraq!

Pixie November 30th, 2008 07:01 PM

Both names are fine on their own, but I wouldn't use them in a sibset. It's a little too matchy and really makes it seem like you are trying hard to follow a theme.

Beautiful countries.

Horrible horrible names for children.

MamaLynn November 30th, 2008 07:47 PM

I don't really like it as a sib set.. one or the other by itself might be ok.

I too think that they're fine independently but not together.

Merolia November 30th, 2008 11:17 PM

Independently, I think Israel is fine. It's a Biblical name, not just a country. Ireland, on the other hand, is a country that became trendy as a girls' name either because Alec Baldwin used it for his daughter or because anything thought to be Irish is trendy right now. If you want to name your daughter after Ireland, use an Irish name.

nmsaa for a sibset. But I do like Ireland

*~ Joni ~* December 1st, 2008 06:59 AM

I like Ireland. And I like sibsets where the names start with the same initials. But starting with the same initials AND both being countries is a little matchy, even for me. :lol:

Ireland and Isaac
Ireland and Isaiah

Israel and Ariel
Israel and Abigail
Israel and Annabelle

I like Israel on it's own but not in a sib set with Ireland.

Cordelia December 1st, 2008 11:39 PM

I don't like either of them, personally, and especially not together.. :/

It'd be cute for B/G twins. I like both names, but for siblings if not twins may be a lil much IMHO.

IsraelSofiaMalachi&baby December 2nd, 2008 06:20 PM
