Comments for EAMON:

The single -N variation of the name Eamonn was popularized by Eamon de Valera, the president of Ireland from 1959 to 1973. Born in the US, de Valera "gaelicised" his birth name "Edward" when he returned to Ireland and decided to forgo the second letter -N. [noted -ed]

Ay-muhn? or ee-muhn? Ay-muhn sounds like a Rasta greeting, and ee-muhn rhymes with semen and demon. I prefer Armand. Or even the original, Edward.

It's not a bad name, but I still associate it with that one hit wonder idiot with his stupid track F**k It. Good thing no one will remember that guy by 2014. I personally think the name is okay with either pronunciation, and it sounds very Irish, not like a Rasta greeting or any silly stuff like that. Actually, the name is rather out of place elsewhere.

I'm not overly keen on this name, mostly because of Éamon de Valera (his name should have a fada - forward accent - over the first "e"). He blatantly refused to let women fight with weapons during the Easter Rising.

As someone has already stated before me, Irish president De Valera spelled his name as Éamon, not Eamon. Therefore, he should not be mentioned in the entry for Eamon - but rather, in a to-be-created entry for Éamon. [noted -ed]
