Sinead O'Connor is brilliant. Top lass. She's not scared of anything, she's not! Our little Bengal cross cat is called Trillian Sinead in her honour... case of having to because the vet got very scissor-happy when he was getting her ready for her, what you might call, "ladies operation!" Five years on and little Trilly Sinead is still doing her terrific Irish namesake proud personality-wise.

This name became popular in Ireland because it was borne by Sinéad de Valera (1878 - 1975), the wife of the Irish president Éamon de Valera. She was born with the name Jane, but later chose to use its Irish form Sinéad.

Sinead O'Connor has ruined this name for me. I find her to be very creepy and rather obnoxious. I admit that it does sound pretty, but the association is pretty strong.

Sinéad one of those pretty and sophisticated names that could suit many types of women. I've always liked it, though now I slightly prefer the softer-sounding Mairéad. I think Sinéad and Siobhán would by good names for twin girls. They have the same essence. Well, at least I think. However, Sinéad is very, very common, which puts me off from actually using it.

I'm sorry, I hate this name. It sounds cheap and ugly, and also whenever I think of the name, I think of a grenade. I think that explains it. I think you'd be a little bit silly if you named your child after a bomb. :/

Doubtful that this name is "Irish form of Jeannette" since it's origins are more complex than that. It is really more closely related to Seán, this is where its meaning lies.

The runner-up on Canada's Next Top Model was named Sinead. She was pretty cool, just like this name. =)

While it's very common in Ireland, it's almost unheard of in the U.S., which I think is a shame. Sinéad is a very pretty name, in my opinion. However, I realise that in accordance with the original Gaelic pronunciation, this should be "Shi-nayd," I pronounce it like this: "Shawn-id." There was a girl I knew who pronounced her name that way, like the Scottish Seonaid, but spelled it as Sinead.

My daughter's best friend's name is Sinéad, but the first syllable is pronounced "sin" instead of "shin". I think that sounds even more interesting.

Another Irish singer Sinéad Lohan was not yet mentioned but I see that Sinéad O'Connor was.

Since stress usually falls on the first syllable in Gaelic, shouldn't Sinéad ("Jane", "Jenny") be pronounced as "SHIN-ayd"?
