- Personal experiences with the name Saoirse
This name is growing in popularity in the US. Since giving my daughter this name I have come across 6 other little girls named Saoirse. Sair-Sha does seem to be a more popular pronounciation then Seer-Sha. Though I have been told that even in Ireland the pronounciation varies depending on the area.
We have a three year old daughter called Saoirse, we really adore her & we think the name suits her 100%, the common abbreviations seem to be 'Sersh' or 'Search', and the only concern we have with the name is the strong republican connection/connotation, which we were were blissfully unaware of when we named her!
We still love the name though )
