remember how you were little, you and your friends would change your names to ones you love, its only as you get older you develop an appreciation of your name. Its the only thing im happy to say i dont mind being pretentious about.....i absoloutly love my name now. when i worked in America so many people told me what a lovely name Sinéad was. Didnt believe till i came home. Its nice that i was given a good ol irish name.

I like mine. Called after my Mammy only hers had an "A" on the end which I would love! When we were kids my friend and I went swimming with my big sis and we met 2 boys and told them our names were Zoe and Kim! My sis told me that, I dont remember! but I do remember always loving the name Zoe.

Hate mine. Called after some dead relative that was dead before was even born! I'm hoping it sounds more normal whenever I get himself up the aisle cos he has a nice Irish surname.

I like mine and I always have - Its sort of a unusal name in that not many irish ppl are called it - Its more english. Mam did want to call me Molly though..
