Personal experiences with the name Stiofáiín: | Edit

I use Stiofáinín when speaking or dealing with matters to do with the Irish language. I have met one other Stiofáinín and, again, she uses Stephanie when talking in English. The name does pose some problems as the odd person finds it hard to pronounce. It is not an authentic 'Gaeilgeoir' name. As a translation, I like it, but, if one wished to use it for their daughter's 'full-time' name, I would suggest using Stephanie for documentation - spelling, pronunciation etc. are much more commonly known. If you really want an Irish name (maith sibh!), I would personally choose a more authentic version.

Meanings and history of the name Stiofáiín: | Edit

Stiofáinín is the feminine of the name Stiofán (Stephen). Stiofán is popular amongst Gaeilgeoiri (Irish-speakers) but Stiofáinín would be unusual. It is formed from adding the diminutive -ín to Stiofán. The diminutive can imply affection and is a common way to create a feminine form of a masculine name. The -ín ending is very common in many popular Irish names. Stiofáinín comes from Stephanos which means crown or garland.
