My daughter and I are studying Irish. We would like to know what our names might be in Irish. Her name is Julie Clement. My name is Marjorie McCourt Clement (McCourt being the maiden name). So far we have come up with Síle Ni Clement for Julie and nothing for me. Thanks for your help!

Síle is generally accepted as an Irish equivalent of Julia, but it's actually a transl(iter)ation of Cecilia. You can still use it as an equivalent, of course; there's precedent there. But I've also seen Iúile, pronounced like /Yool-yeh/, as an Irish form of Julia. You'll notice its resemblance to Iúil, the Irish name for July.
