That's neat!  I know a guy named Rory.  I suppose the second syllable of Ruairi comes from , the Irish word for king.  Since I'm learning Spanish, I noticed it's pretty close to the Spanish word for king, rey.

Today's name is Ewan, meaning "young warrior."

It's pronounced like "YEW-an."

That's in contrast to Eoghan, pronounced like "Owen."

Today's name is Máirín (pronounced Maw-reen).

It means "star of the sea!"

The English version is "Maureen."

Curious if Mairead/Máiréad/Mairéad also had a sea-related meaning, I looked it up. The English version is Margaret, which means "pearl." Both rare and beautiful, a name that means pearl seems fitting for two of our favorite performers.

Cadhla (KY-lah) means beautiful, comely, and graceful.

It's one of my favorite Irish names. It seems to roll off the tongue (once you know how to pronounce it) and it has a pleasant sound.

Sile (SHEE-la) means 'pure and musical' or 'heavenly.' It's a derivative of Cecilia.

Fergal means brave, courageous and valorous. In contrast to most Irish names/words, this one is pronounced pretty much as it looks.
