I am in a dilema, I am Irish and living in NZ and am due end of November. My son's name is cormac so we want to keep to irish names, but I cant decide on Maeve or Aveen for a girl? We using ellen as a middle name. We have a our boys name sorted!
I love both of those names, my friend names her baby Aveen (think she spelled Aoibheann or something like that) and i thought it was lovely
to be honest they are both lovely so you cant go far wrong!
I love Maeve/Meabh. I also love ellen.
i like both but would prefer aveen. im also having ellen as a 2nd name if its a girl, MILs name.
i prefer meadbh
how about eabha (eva)?
short n sweet
I love the name Maebh think its very pretty
Ailbhe (Alva) is also nice and not too hard to pronounce
I absolutely love Aveen...it's so different and not to celtic
Out of curiousity, what names have you thought of for a boy. I'm in the same situation as you (Irish but living abroad).
I'd go with Aveen. It's pronounced as it's spelled and that's not always the case with Irish names as you well know.
