Saoirse

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on February 1, 2010

Seriously, how many random people — like people that you would come into contact with during the regular course of your day, would be able to spell or pronounce this name? About 1 in 500 is a conservative estimate.

For the record, it’s apparently pronounced SEER-sha.  Bet that’s not what you thought!

Actually, I know someone named Saoirse, and the teachers don’t have that much trouble with it.

May I ask what makes it a stupid name? It’s quite beautiful when said out loud, in fact, I think most words in English can’t compare. What’s with your hate of Irish names? You’ve posted several other Irish names as stupid. Is it because you’re racist? Because I’m afraid that you seem rather biased and idiotic.

Actually, the name Saoirse has five different pronunciations, Seer-sha being one of them. By the way, you spelled it incorrectly in your username, unless you were spelling a different name.

This name is a dyslexic’s nightmare; I keep reading it as ‘sigh-rose’ …if I ever meet a person named this, that’s what I’m calling them.

Please don’t. It gets very offensive to the person. It’s understandable that it’s a hard name to pronounce, but you could at least give them a polite nickname that isn’t ‘sigh-rose’. Or maybe call them by their middle or last name.

Some names people just need an education to appreciate. Saoirse looks odd, but once you hear it it’s lovely. Taking an interest in other cultures helps one sort the unusual names from the actually shitty ones.

Just because a name isn’t AMERICAN doesnt mean it’s stupid. Most of the names on here are, but some are just culturally different.

Nope – they’re all stupid!
