Might there be an Irish form for: Regina Grace?

How about: Benjamin William?

Thanks!

Brian

Regina is the latin for Queen, Ríona means something similar

The Old Irish name Gráinne is frequently given as Grace in English, so why not use it! But it would be unusual as a surname, is that what your looking for?

Benjamin is a biblical name, I need to check the Irish version.

William is usually represented by Liam; perhaps Mac Liam if it is a surname.

Benjamin is often translated as Beiniaimin.
