My Dh loves that name Dualta (sp) for a boy but I'm not convinced, although I like the the fact that it's not very popular and it's Irish.
What do you think?
its growing on me as I say it out loud. I actually prefer it to most irish boys names!
how do you pronounce it? i've never heard of it before
Thanks Nyota - it's growing on me too.
Minke I think it's pronounced Doo-al-ta
I am also thinking of the name Fionn.
If its a girl its Dearbhla Grace
for me it would completely depend on what your surname is. It is an unusual name so babs will probably have to spell it out. If you have a common surname, go for it. Otherwise I'd be thinking hard about it.
That said I really like the name and Fionn too.
Then again I have an awful married surname that has to be spelt ALL the time so i'm biased.
Sorry, but personally I don't like Dualta. Love Fionn, though!
To be totally honest I don't really like the name Dualta - I think it would have to be spelt out all the time and would be pronounced all sorts of wrong ways. I think Fionn is a lovely name though. There was a thread on here about Irish boys names a couple of days ago so you could take a look there for some suggestions if you haven't seen it already. Good luck with the decision!
Thanks for the replies folks.
You made a good point Toblerone - my married name is a bit of a nightmare - pronounced completely differently to how its spelt.
I think I may have to talk the DH out of it.
