It's funny, just months after I posted the above comment, my aunt and uncle had a little boy and named him Seamus Blair. I've loved this name for some time now, and I wonder why it's not more popular. This is such a great name!

I hate this name. It sounds like "shame us".

How can you justify how the name Seamus is pronounced? It's shay-mus. You speak in 5 languages how can you know how it's pronounced? You have different ways of saying most words.

I have to agree with Mr. Seamus over there. It doesn't sound like shame us. It's a great name, arrowhead.

There's a monkey at the Monkey World park in Dorset called Seamus.

Even though I tend to like trendy, and classic names, Seamus is an exception to the rule. Seamus is the Irish form of James, my favorite boy's name. And just to clarify, Seamus is not a very close friend of Harry's in the books, unlike the depiction in the movies.

My son's name is Seamus Padraig. Absolutely love this name. We do occasionally have people mispronounce it, but it doesn't bother me. Many people have heard this name before and thus know how to pronounce it. I think it's a great name. :-)

I absolutely HATE Irish names, especially Seamus. Seamus sounds like some big fat Irish guy in a bar drinking every last drop of beer they have.

Seamus is a really cool Irish and/or Scottish name. Hey jasmineenimsaj just because some Irish people are known for drinking beer, doesn't mean you should stereotype all Irish people as drunken slobs.

I love this name. I have a thing for solid, masculine yet soft, old-timey mens names. Though there's obviously a lot of men named this, you don't hear it every day.

On the album Meddle, by Pink Floyd, the second-to-last song is called Seamus. It is called this because it features the song of a dog howling, and this dog's name was Seamus.

I totally love this name, it sounds awesome. Plus, it's Irish. :D I would definitely name a child this. It's not very common where I live.

I usually don't like Irish names, but I do like Seamus. I just hope the people using it here in the US have actual Irish connections and don't just like the sound. That's when Irish names become trendy, and end up with dozens of anglicizations.

I love the name 'Seamus' so that's why I chose it as my son's middle name. His first name 'Connor' is so common now I wish we'd made 'Seamus' his first name instead. However, at the time we named him we were moving from the U.K. to America and every American friend I talked to about the name 'Seamus' pronounced it "Sea-Mas" and it just came too close to the word 'Semen.' Anyway, pronounced "Shay-mus," it's a wonderful name, very soft but still masculine.

I've tried to understand the appeal of this name but I just can't. When I hear it, I think of a redheaded man in a kilt playing bagpipes in the Alps somewhere.
