pretty but unusual irish girl names


Hi!
Anyone have any ideas for a nice pretty irish name for my daughter?
Nothing too common though.
I've been through loads of websites and lists and nothing is really jumping out at me.Both my sons have irish names,so wanted to call this lo something irish too.
At the moment Keavy has been at the forefront,but now we're getting closer to my due date I'm having second thoughts!!!
Sometimes I love it,and then sometimes I panic that I have no other options!!

Sadhbh, Maeve and Aoibheann are my favourites, much less common tha Aoife, Aisling etc. I came across two others recently which seem maybe too cute for a future adult- Nóinín and Réaltín- little daisy and little star! I have a thread somewhere here for Irish names in general.

My cousin suggested some Irish girl names and my favorite was Mackenna (or McKenna.)

I love how Irish names have changed! McKenna is a surname here in Ireland There's Irish names in English, Irish names in Irish and then Irish-American names.

When I was choosing names for my daughter, my favorites were Maeve, Neassa and Neala.

I love Niamh, Elva, Maeve, Maura, and Moira. But Niamh is my favorite Irish name by far.
