Personal experiences with the name Eamonn: | Edit

This is by far the BEST name in the book! ... Even though it isn't actually in the book (or any American/British book for that matter), I've seriously made friends because they thought my name was funny, so they found me funny! Really, though, while this name will give your teachers and strangers a run for their pronunciation money, it's the greatest name to have. It truly makes you unique from practically everyone else, even though there will be many "Eammon"s and "Amon"s and "Eemon"s! Looking for a conversation starter? "Hey, I'm Eamonn!" "Wait, WHAT?!", while everyone else is like, "Hey, I'm John!" "Cool." And I must say, if you have this name, I would go ahead and make your life goal to meet someone else named Eamonn in the world (OUTSIDE of Ireland), and when you do, it'll be the coolest little reunion of Eamonn's! GO EAMONN!!

P.S. If you live in America, there is a restaurant in New York called Eamonn's Bar and Grill, and it is AMAZING! I actually went there a few weeks ago, and they made me a cake when I brought a copy of my birth certificate showing my name was actually Eamonn! It was awesome, and just one of the benefits to the coolest name out there! Keep rockin' it, Eamonn!
