Comments for GRÁINNE:

Oh, and let's not forget the valiant Gráinne Mhaol (or Gráinne ní Mhaille, or her Anglicized name, Grace O'Malley), famed pirate queen of Connacht, who lived at the time of Elizabeth I.

A musical has been made about the adventures of Grainne (Grace) O'Malley. It's called The Pirate Queen and premiered in Chicago in 2006. It is now on Broadway if you want to see it!

One of my good friends is named this. She spells it Grania which I dislike as she changed it herself. Grainne is very pretty.

Grainne was the name of a Celtic sun-goddess, as well as the 16th-century Irish pirate queen, Grainne O'Malley (also called Granny Malley and Grace O'Malley), a contemporary of Elizabeth I of England.

Gráinne is the modern Irish word for 'Grace' as in Grace O'Malley. 'Tá gráinne aici' means 'she has grace'.

Grainne Hambly, a professional harpist from Ireland. She's also really nice, so I think that this pretty name suits her.

I think this name is hideous!

Ceres reminds me of cereal and Grainne reminds me of grain, but I still love those names. The song "Diarmuid and Grainne" by Celtic metal band Cruachan tells their story.

So ugly. =(

Gráinne has grown on me. It's feminine and yet strong (probably the association with Gráinne Mhaol) and it's pretty without any excessive frills.
