What is the Irish language equivalent of the name Aidan/Aiden? I know that the name is derived from the Irish language. Perhaps a more difficult question: What is... or would be the Scottish Gaelic spelling and pronunciation of the same name.
Wikipedia says Aodhán in Irish and Aodhàn in Scottish Gaelic (note the accents are different).
all over the Internet there seems to be confusion with the correct pronunciation of Aodhán in Irish... specifically whether there is a "D" like sound when said or there is no "D" and it is in fact pronounced much like Ian. fyi: I know the Irish spelling of Ian is not Aodhán
I could find now Scottish Gaelic info on...well almost everything. I'm curious where this Wikipedia editor got that info and whether it's correct.
Also, a simple one... Cearbhaill is my surname though I use Carroll a lot. My family says KYEARLL... ll as in the -OL in Carol. Would you agree?
