  • "My name is Seamus and whenever I meet someone online who is Irish, they immediately recognize my name. I don't think I've met a single Irish person who hadn't been able to recognize or pronounce my name. But I honestly wouldn't have any other name... it's very fun to correct people on how to pronounce or spell your name, sometimes I'm even contested: "That name doesn't exist" "I know all gaelic names, Seamus is not one of them." and I just have to shake my head."

  • "It?s mine and I ave good experience with it other than pronounced" Nov. 21, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My husband was born in Tramore, Co Waterford, Eire (Ireland) in 1932. His name is John James Kiernan, or Sean Seamus in Irish. He has a brother named Seamus - his family calls him Jimmie for short. His other brothers are named Francis, Martin, Michael and Patrick. (These names show up generation after generation in geneology. Makes it easy to get mixed up.) In the early 1930's it wasn't really safe to embrace Irish culture (they had just won their independence from England 10 years before...)so my husband went by Sean at home and John in school. Their last name was McKiernan originally. My husband's cousin was told by the nuns in school to write her last name Kiernan, instead of McKiernan, so it sounded more English. Lots of families did this. My grandson (born in 2005) is named Seamus to honor his Irish heritage." Jul. 7, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "my dad was called seamus and im going to call my little boy seamus" Aug. 26, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son's best friend (2 1/2 y/o) is named Seamus. They say people always pronounce it wrong from the spelling. I think it is a great name and have only heard it one other time in the US." Feb. 10, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "my car's name is seamus. as in sea+muss, not shay+muss. he loves it, too." Dec. 17, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is our son's name. Everyone mispronounces it "See-mus," but we love it and it fits him perfectly." Jul. 7, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "People always mispronounce it -- unless they are Irish. "Say-ah-moose" is the most common mispronounciation. People also don't ever know how to spell it. "Shamus" is how they normally think it's spelled. And alot of people seem to think it is a "made-up" name. Something we came up with out of our heads or something."
