How to Pronounce Irish Names - with Dusty Rhodes

Last year at this time, we did an episode about Irish Names - and our Irish listeners had quite a laugh at how we Americans pronounced Irish names! So this year we've invited popular Irish radio host and podcast producer Dusty Rhodes to help us with authentic Irish name pronunciation!We looked at the popular names from Ireland from 2019 and picked out the more traditional Irish names that would give Americans a bit of a challenge. Here's the list, with the name and current rank for babies in Ireland. Follow along with us and see if you get the pronunciation right!BOYSTadhg 8Darragh 11Oisín 13Fionn 16Cillian 17 / Cian 32Rían 20Senán 41Donnacha 56Cathal 61Eoin 74Ruairí 87Odhran 92Daithí 116Éanna 127Páidí 143GIRLSFíadh 3Caoimhe 17Saoirse 23Éabha 29Sadhbh 37Róisín 40Clodagh 50Niamh 54Aoibhín 69Ailbhe 75Aoibheann 79Áine 92Aisling 94Laoise 131Aoibhe 137Check out Dusty's podcast "The Dust Pod" at www.dustpod.ie.View the full list of most popular Irish Baby Names from the CSO.________The Baby Names Podcast is a production of BabyNames.com.   Learn more about your ad choices.
