Despite my ancestry, Irish is a ridiculous language.

I know, I did Honours Irish so had to study it till I was 18. It is a bit mad to be fair, as I posted previously

Bean = woman (pronounced ban)
An bhean = the woman (pronounced van)
Mná = women (pronounced menAW)
Na mná = the women
Hataí ban = women's hats
Cumann na mBan = The Women's Council (mBan pronounced man)

Depends how much time he's spent in Brittany and whether he's learnt to speak some Breton.

What do you reckon? - born right in the middle of France, he debuted for Le Mans as a pro footballer, so he may have ventured into Brittany to practise his Gaelic ...

It sounds wonderful when spoken I think.

Ee-fah according to Google.

Correct, first one is Neev or Nieve (as is believe) and the third is more She-vawn.

How about Caoimhín, Aoibheann, or Eoghan?
Niamh is one I've struggled on in the past. Weirdly even after I found out it rhymed with leave (thanks to a kid's book)

I meant "Neev", not sure why I typed "Neem". Stupid brain 😡

Our one-and-only granddaughter who is English born and bred has the name Aoife, I'd imagine that was her father's choice. 

Aoife is lovely name meaning beauty as is Cliodhna (Kleena) but my favourite is probably Sorcha.

The irish version of Conor is Conchubhar. You absolutely will not be able to work out how it's pronounced.

Not a bad effort, but it's actually pronounced "cruh-hoor". I'm not sure how either.

I am indeed.

My former boss used it a lot for difficult Irish names (Aoife, Niamh, even Siobhan which I thought the Brits had a handle on by now).

I’d hope so by now, too. A few years ago I was having to grit my teeth and write yearly school reports for a child called Siobhan, spelt (her parents insisted) ‘Sibohan’.

I think most football pundits and commentators should use for all names before a match. I watched an interview with Ayling of Leeds the other day and he even said his name during a story, the interviewer still pronounced it wrong.
