Clutching at straws now for a name we both like.

Like it a lot - but how are you pronouncing? Like One Drection (Ny-ahl)
Or Nee-ahl? (Often anglicised to Neil).

Can't use it myself but very nice and has a great heritage/meaning.

First baby name thread where I actually thought "ohh great name!"

Really lovely name - good luck on the final decision!

Just suggested this name to my DH a few weeks ago and we both really like it (if its pronounced Nile). It's a strong sounding name I think.

Nyal/Nile... If it was nee ahl surely it would just neal...

It can be Nile or Neel. I think in Ireland it's always pn Nile, and in Scotland it's sometimes Neel.

Niall is the original spelling of the anglicised name Neil.

I know a little Niall. I think it's a great name,unlike the anglicised Neil which sounds like a command rather than a name.

I like it.

My favourite boys name of all time . Unfortunately due to the delectable Niall Quinn there are billions of Nialls my way.

It's a bit 1975.

I know a Nile - named after his parents honeymooned in Egypt. Great name with either spelling.

I have a brother called Niall, have seldom met another one. I like the name.

Ideally if spelt Niall it should be pronounced Ny-al to rhyme with 'dial' as oppossed to sounding like the River Nile. Otherwise its really just a variation of Neil.
