  1. if i was a boy i would have been named "Eoghan" (pronounced "Owen"). thank God.

  2. I think it’s so weird how people from Europe can always do American accents and we can do it back lol

  3. How do you think this one is pronounced? (Saoirse)

    I dunno ummm, Darragh (Stephen)

    It's bob (Saoirse)

  4. That last one, pretty sure she's messing with him. That's no way "queva" 👈this is queva 😁

  5. it was pronounced as 'ser-sha'. i was reading her name as 'sa-wor-sie' all this time..

  6. “Say-OR-see” is what I thought until I actually heard someone say her name 🤦🏾‍♀️ It’s a beautiful name, nonetheless. ❤️

  7. The amazing thing about Irish names is that you can bang letters on an anagram generator and you are bound to come up with something exotic.

  8. I think they may have used spellings like that simply to confuse English people originally.

  9. I just realised that there actually are languages with spelling system worse then English. That is impressive.

  10. 2:01 oh, okay! That´s how you say her name. That was my first doubt.

  11. the thumbnail looks like she's saying: smell my finger ( ͡◉ ͜ʖ ͡◉)

  12. Am I the only irish person here? Yes? Ok.

  13. Living in Ireland and having to go through this every day (saying names) once you get used to hear it or say it you will actually find the names really nice Irish✌

  14. What it looks like to me is that the Irish just slap a keyboard and say "Yep, that will about do it your name is xfcghynbv"

  15. Omg my best friend in elementary school’s middle name was Niamh and I didn’t know it’s Irish! Maybe her family is a bit Irish or something

  16. Anyone from the north saying “seer-shuh” and not “sur-shuh”?

  17. Skin tone ?? What she trying to say ??
    don't be ignorant Mexicans come in all colors and shades :/

  18. The actual pronunciation of Caoimhe I’d actually keeva not kweeva

  19. Even saoirse gets more irish .. her accent is more pronounced when shes on these shows.

  20. Are Irish people trolling the world with these name spellings and pronunciations?

  21. I'm so upset… the only reason I know how to pronounce Siobhan is because of Twilight

  22. There's something about this girl that is extremely unique.

  23. Depends on which county. The Dub Jackeen accent and Belfast? Noooo

  24. She's on the verge of showing red headed Irish temper..
    .Must be the DNA alcohol

  25. as a fan of English, I find the pronunciation game funny. I mean, why bother? regardless of accents, you all have the fabulous word "one". how the heck is that thing pronounced as it is?? Then you have blood and flood and those should be like good. but they aren't. then the word finite, approximately fuy night. but the whole thing changes with the antonym, it is not in fuy night. as if the antonym of friendly were unfroondloo

  26. I finally found names harder to pronounce based strictly off of spelling than my own. I feel less alone.

  27. Time for English to get phonetic with spellings. Say what's written, and write how it sounds. Keep it simple. This is for the future. History of all languages is great.

  28. Call the Irish, Welsh, and Scottish a part of England and brace for the knife to their throat, no joke, just history. Thank god for the Irish minute men Patriots kicking British ass in Massachusetts. Sent the English literally back to their country defeated and humiliated. 7/20/19 Unlike Nazi Trump in present day attacking Congresswoman of color. Way to negatively stereotype your German bloodline Trump as "wannabe Hitler 2"

  29. Looks a lot more slavic than celtic-coming from someone coming from a mostly slavic, a little celtic and germanic country

  30. I wish Steve would stop interrupting her.
    Anyway this is a reminder to me that the Irish do kind of speak a foreign language.

  31. She is SOOO loveable. <3
    she's naturally beautiful but her personality just makes her even more captivating! She's got it all.

  32. Remember when pronouncing a simple sentence as such as:
    "Come over here."
    You pronounce it as:
    "Come over hair."

  33. teaching an irish accent = going to a different language that you dont understand anything

  34. She pronounces Caoimhe differently from what we say in the north of Ireland, it’s “key-vah” here
