Bees- I need your help. I am in my third trimester and my husband and I are struggling with names for our little boy. We are miles apart in the naming process and have not been able to agree on anything. It has been such a battle…hands down the most difficult part of the pregnancy has been naming the kiddo.
There is just 1 name we have come across and both equally liked. This past summer (before we were expecting) we met this Irish guy named Eamon. Later that night we discussed how much we loved his name and joked that we should add it to our baby name list (little did we know we’d be getting pregnant very soon). We eliminated Eamon from our list a few months ago because it is difficult to spell/pronounce, and we had some negative feedback from relatives.
Okay- so please tell me what you really think of the name Eamon. You can be honest- we’ve heard it all. It is the only name my husband and I both equally like, but on the other side I don’t want to make my son’s life difficult by giving him a tricky name.

I like the name, but voted not sure because all I can think about is the song that says F a lot. But I’m sure by the time he gets old enough no one will remember that song. Although I totally pulled it up on youtube, because I kind of like it.

How is it pronounced? Eee-mon or Aa-mon? I always try to think of what it could rhyme with or what the nickname would likely be. It immediately reminded me if Jude Law’s character Inman from Cold Mountain 🙂

@firsttimemom Haha- Deamon Eamon 🙂 That made me LOL
@bakerella It is pronounced “Aa-man”, but you are right that is not entirely clear from the spelling of it. It is one of my concerns about the name…

Ooooh Aaa-man. That’s better than Ee-mon which made me think of being teased with “Semen Eamon” or something once kids get to that
age. I think I’d prefer Aa-mOn to Aa-mAn though.

I am kind of “ehh” about it. It’s not great, but not terrible. 🙂 That probably wasn’t helpful at all, was it, LOL!

I thought it would be pronounced Ee-mon…. Maybe you can make the spelling more similar to the pronunciation?

Love it, but biased – my FFIl’s name. Good proper irish name! We’re going with Dara, Danann, Fionnan or Senan for a boy, whenever that (hopefully) happens. With Rua as a second name if there is any indication of red-hairedness!
