Thread Name: Help: Meaning od Siobhan???
Subject: RE: Help: Meaning od Siobhan???
An Pluimeir Ceolmhar: Funny that you should pronounce Siobhan in the way you mentioned. I was also brought in Muunster (Cork to be exact) and we always pronounced Siobhan as "Shiv-Awn." Goes to show. Incidentally regarding children's names, there was a hoot in the recent series of "Auf Widersehn Pet." Moxie is telling Kevin about his nephew and calls him "Gooey." "Gooey", says Kevin, "How is it spelt?" "G.U.Y.", replies Moxie. Yes, parents are to blame for a great deal in regard to naming their offspring.
