Within the families that I've researched, many of them became more "patriotic" over the years

aunt Eileen was called after grand-mother Ellen

uncle Joe was registered as an O'Byrne in 1922 - his older siblings were Byrne.

the electoral rolls see Julia Doyle becoming Sheila Doyle for a few years, and then reverting to Julia

(and several other similar examples)
Begg - Dublin, Limerick, Cardiff
Brady - Dublin
Breslin - Wexford, Dublin
Byrne - Wicklow
O'Hara - Wexford, Kingstown
McLoghlin - Roscommon
Lawlor - Meath, Dublin
Lynam - Meath and Renovo, Pennsylvania
Everard - Meath
Fagan - Dublin
Meyler/Myler - Wicklow
Gray - Derry, Waterford
Kavanagh - Limerick

It is a most striking phenomenon eadaoin, I for one am pleased that SeŠn/Sean has come back from virtual extinction.

I can't tell this story properly because everyone is living but the gist of it goes..
My niece visiting her grandmother in hospital is looking funny at the nurse as the nurse speaks to grandmother.
I said, you didn't know that was your Granny's real name did you?
No
While we're at it your uncle - isn't he's - and your aunty - isn't she's -.
Ahh
Sister in law joins in
Your other Granny isn't - either she's -
This family is mad, is Daddy really -
Yes he is
Phew, crazy family.
