I've noticed that many Irish people use both their English and Irish versions of the name.
For example, Moya Brennan, born Máire Ní Bhraonáin
Can someone tell me what is the official status of these 2 different names?
Do both the names appear in the passport/ID or just the Irish, thus making the English variation an unofficial name used in English context? Would Máire change her name to Moya is she would move to England?
- Are Irish traditional names still in use today, or does the anglicized form prevail in modern times?
