She fell in love with Fionn's son Oisin and lived with him in Tir-na-nOg ("Land of the Young") where 300 years passed in what seemed like three weeks. In 2003 it was the eleventh most popular baby girl's name in Ireland.
BROTHER'S NAME: Liam Connor McCracken
I realize the middle name she will need to pronounce for people, but rarely does anybody know your middle name unless you offer it. Yet, I've noticed Liam became very popular in Ireland & a few years later it started to pick up in the USA. When my ds was first born I would have to repeat his name a few times to people, now people respond by saying their grandson or nephew's name is Liam. With both Aislinn & Niamh both being popular there now I would not be surprised in a few years it will better known in the US too.
Does it sound feminine?
Is is easy or hard to roll off of the tongue?
What type of nn's do you come up with?
Is it too close to Ashley, which was the 8th most popular girl name in the USA last year?
