    Oh-shawna-see - all one word, famous Irish name O'Shaughnessy [Celtic].

    Irish names are usually Anglicised in the English speaking world. In Gaelic Irish they look and are often pronounced quite differently.

    For example, the famous Irish name of Cadogan is pronounced in Irish as Kay-de-gawn [something like that] but here in UK is simply Cad-ogen.

    It is very important to try to get Irish names right.

      Pronounced either as hard Kay or a soft Cee. It's entirely up to your good Celf. Diddley aye, diddley aye etc.

    It really depends on what part of the Gaeltacht you're from. It may also be pronounced O Shawn Ess Eee. It's up to you Biddy, whether you're from Donegal or Kerry. Capiche?
