I came upon (no giggling at the back there) a plethora of Irish female friends when I was at university, namely Siobhan, Roisin, Meabh and Niamh. Oh, did I make a fool of myself calling them See-oh-ban, Roy-sin, Mee-ber (!) and Nee-aim-ee. What a stupid boy I am! Only weeks later did I get taken aside by Roy-sin and have her tell me how to pronounce them. Love the Irish, but they are SILLY ways to spell She-vaughn, Row-sheen, Mave (!) and Neeve. :-)
