Thanks for posting, folks.

Ma, what have I done to you? ;)
How do you pronounce, Niamh? I like the name.
I like, Corky, as well. Which do you prefer?

It's pronounced like how I spelled it in my screen name, Nee-v.

lol It's a toss up between Niamh and Corky. Most people call me Corky on here anyway haha so I don't mind either.

My mother hates when I get called that. Imagine an old Irish lady scolding, "Use your Christian name!" while wagging her finger  :P

Wagging fingers can be scary and comical. Probably mostly depends on how closely they are being wagged at you. A finger wag in the face can be frightening to some and you don't dare follow the wag with your eyes or you run the risk of looking like a smart-aleck. :o

My siblings and I have impossible names. The luckiest one is my brother Donal, but most people assume his name is spelt wrong lol.

Kid to parent, "Why'd you spell my name wrong?"


           I was going somewhere with this and the thought escaped.  ??? I hate when that happens. :D

Yeah conversations went something like that. Especially when my sister asked why she was named after a Stevie Nicks song.

Rhiannon. My father wasn't a hippie just a Fleetwood Mac fan.

The only reason the old lady let him do it is because it's Welsh.

I love that song! The name isn't bad.  
At least he didn't try to name her, Tusk. That would have been rough for a girl. ;)


Who or what were you named after, if you don't mind my asking?

I didn't know that! Very cool. And you were being somewhat cryptic. I wouldn't have known if you didn't tell me.

Huh, learn something new every day. :)
