I advise a few pints - for medicinal purposes only, of course.;)

Today, on the front page of www.msn.com, I read..."Irish names a hit for new borns..."

www.msn.com (should be towards the top, center)

Here is the article...and with all my friends having babies right now, I can vouch for this. Most of them picked Irish names as their favorites.

Isn't Guinness supposed to be good for one's health?

My favourite Irish name for a boy is Aodh (pr: ay)

and Bevan or Caoimhe (pr: Queeva) for a girl

You are dead right. It is good for you. It's recommended for pregnant women. Not getting off your face of course but a glass every know and then gives nutrients to your baby.

It also helps with thining the blood for those who suffer from vascular problems. Red wine helps here also. But you can't beat a great pint.

Ps. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the song from the Guinnes ad where the bloke jumps into the Atlantic and swims to NYC just to say sorry to his brother? I love the ad and the song and don't know where to get it. Ta

One pint a day (no more or less) has been proven to reduce cholesterol and decrease the likelihood of heart disease.

This has now become the mantra of every Irish man the length and breadth of the country

Dee, that song is called "Hey Day" by Mick Christopher. ;)
