Comments for the name Ruarc

Comments for RUARC:

This name is pronounced RORK, like fork and pork. I've seen spelling variations of this name in real life, movies and literature. Most people spelled it Ruark, Roark or Roarke.

It would most likely be pronounced as "ROO-ark" or "RWARK" in Gaelic, rather than the corruption "RORK".

No, it's definitely pronounced Rork. It's a second name, as in O'Ruarc.

It is pronounced rOO-arc. It can sound like it rhymes with York when said fast to people unfamiliar with Gaelic, because the syllables slide into each other.
