User comments for Redmond

Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
An interesting mix of [exclusively irish] people with this name: a judge [Redmond Barry], a travel writer and an outlaw [both Redmond o'Hanlon] and the adventurer Redmond Barry from the Thackeray novel.

I think this is a very interesting option as a name for someone wanting something with Irish roots but that the rest of the world can pronounce.

A similar sound to the better known but jaded Raymond and Desmond and "lighter" than Edmund. It also ties in to the surname as name trend, while having a proper history behind it.

I agree that this is a better name than those you listed, Eoin, but it isn’t a surname? People may mistake it as one, but Redmond is (thankfully) only a first name.

I like the sound of this name. It's an Irish version of my own name. I'm considering it as a name for a son.

Also, Redmond Barry was the original name of Barry Lyndon, title character of The Luck of Barry Lyndon by William Makepeace Thackeray and a Stanley Kubrick film version.

Ryan O'Neal played Redmond Barry/Barry Lyndon in Kubrick's movie.
In addition he and Farrah Fawcett used this name for their son.
