This is on our list but we are debating the merits of the Welsh "Owen" and the Irish "Eoin". I prefer one and DH prefers the other. Not gone on "Eoghan" as in the Irish for Eugene. So what do you girls think... with an "O" or an "E"??
I prefer Owen as it's easier to spell!
I like them both. I'd probably slightly prefer Owen rather than Eoin, simply becasue I think for foreigners its pronunciation is easier/more obvious.
I work with a lot of international clients. Colleagues who have very Irish names have lots and lots of fun explaining the pronunciation etc of their name. Niamh has reconciled herself to being known as "Knee-Ham".
my nephew is Eoin, and another guy i now is Eoin aswell
a girl i know called her baby Eoghan, (pronouced the same)
have to say i prefer the Eoin myself
Eoin is my favourite spelling too.
Wow! Strong poll for Eoin! This was my favourite as it happens!
All my colleagues are based in Ireland (we haven't left our Mammies either!), but we do a lot of work with "forriners"/go to a lot of conferences - that's where the trouble arises. We've a Donal in here too - he has resigned himself to being known as "Donald".
LOL, I forgot.
I absolutely hate the spellings like Owen, Bryan, Shaun. It makes me think the parents didn't know how to spell.
Eoin is a lovely Irish name!
I voted Owen.
I voted for Eoin... Whichever spelling you decide on the name is lovely.
