BONUS EPISODE! Last year at this time, we did an episode about Irish Names – and our Irish listeners had quite a laugh at how we Americans pronounced Irish names! So this year we’ve invited popular Irish radio host and podcast producer Dusty Rhodes to help us with authentic Irish name pronunciation!
We looked at the popular names from Ireland from 2019 and picked out the more traditional Irish names that would give Americans a bit of a challenge. Here’s the list, with the name and current rank for babies in Ireland. Follow along with us and see if you get the pronunciation right!
