Postby little mrs sunshine » Fri Apr 01, 2011 5:40 pm

Just quickly off the top of my head, my nephew is called Tiernan. Had never heard this as a first name before. (ok its prob really common!) But my SIL always got loads of compliments for it.

Turlough or Doireann. Can't think of any more right now, busy cleaning up after dinner!
FORMERLY HANDYMAMMY!

On the radio the other day I heard the name 'Ceola'. He brothers name was mentioned too and it was an irish name so I'm assuming (big assumption!) that it's an Irish name too. Think it's beautiful anyway.
