I just found out I'm having a BOY !!! YAY !!!

The bad news is that my wife said no to all the names I picked out.

She put a big black line through Maxim, Stoner, Browning, Colt, and Kalashnikov.

No cool name for my son :(

I had plenty of good girl named picked out but no boy names. I need a good Irish name but I can't find the perfect one. It takes me all day to buy the perfect pair of shoes. This may put me in the funny farm for good!

Padroag, like the golfer.
Or Brian Boru, like the warrior king.
Or Patrick. Can't get much more Irish than that.

Cormac. As in "Cormac Mac Art of the clan na dub O'Brien", from the Robert E. Howard (creator of Conan) stories.

"-for he is no Viking at all by birth, but a Gael of Erin, by name Cormac Mac Art, called an Cliuin , or the Wolf. Of old, he led a band of Irish reivers and harried the coasts of the British Isles and Gaul and Spain- aye, and he preyed also on the Vikings themselves."

Perry
Dylan
Brock
Bailey
Killian
Gavin
Reece
Ronan
Conor

Bear in mind the list changes almost daily right now

The list is going to continue to change daily and hourly until the laddie's in hand, at which point, your wife's going to announce with perfect finality out of a clear blue sky, "His name's 'Athelstane'."

I have two good Irish friends named Dermot - both called Derry. Because of the nature of these two, I've grown to like the name.

Congratulations!! Name him George, Bill, anything but Sue. Just joking, but remember how much trouble that name caused Johnny Cash?

I had the same issue five years ago. I fixed the whole situation by naming my son Hunter. That pretty much covered it all for me.
