"Aghaveagh, whose name I can't even pronounce, has a lovely blog." said Padre Mickey.
Thank you very much!
And Grandmère Mimi, who says, "My dear, your name is hard to spell. I had to try three times," suggests a diminuitive of "Agha."
My name comes from the Irish Achadh-beithe, meaning "birch-tree field." It's not so hard to pronounce if you remember that the gh combination is silent, and that the diphthong ea is like the "a" in pan. So my name is pronounced something like "Ah-va" with the accent on the first syllable.
Just in case you were wondering...
