I don't know the original origins of our names, but I do know that my name and my daughters' names are French, judging by the number of times I have been asked whether I am French!

Me: Irish
Dts1: Irish
Dts2: Irish

Future children (fingers crossed) will have Irish names as well grin

My name is ancient, but has Celtic origin, could be considered Gaelic by some but is earlier from what I have read.
DC Gaelic and one Pictish as far as I know.
DH Irish Gaelic (he is Irish, I am Scottish).

cwtchbach wondering if I know you then. Do your initials make a railway company?

Cwtchbach Fri 15-Feb-13 08:49:46

I don't think so, I go by my MN though as my Mum and Gran have same name.
