are quite often mispronounced by English tongues. I wonder how often that happened to this guy:
Irish as you like.
I went to school with a girl with this surname.
Presumably my "Whe" is not aitchy enough or something.
It really annoys me
It's 'donlan' not 'don-ellen'
English English English face
Is that Irish for 'shags'?
I can't pronounce this guy's surname at all:
and his middle name was Paul
I love the way how Caoimhe is pronounced...
McCool, Lawless, Power, O'Malley.
YEAH, sounds right.
but "A name taken from the cunning animal; about the year 1333 the Shanachs in Ireland anglicised their name to Fox."
Shanach is better.
in primary school we had to answer to our irish names though...? YEAH I'M COOL
I think that sounds really lovely.
Unless you pronounced it Sor-sha :(((((((((((((
cos you have your first name, then 'son' or 'daughter of' and then the last name.
'Mac(/Mc, shortened)' an = son of
Nic an = daughter of
O = of
you'd be Fiona O' Mhaillaimh or something. i'm not sure what Malley is.
i *think*.... :s
does that really exist?
if so i'm so changing my name to that.
"Had two sons and two daughters: Conor, Aonghus, Maire and Niamh"
irish versions pronounced 'O'Gaeirhra',i think
I was gonna laugh at all of you freaks. But then I realised what my own name was and shut the fuck up.
People take that shit SERIOUSLY.
I thought they were all just generally Celtic and ginger. What's the difference between Scottish Mcs and Irish Mcs.
The other Irish.
That really is it, I think.
