I posted this already on the S/T couples thread and cross posting here. I hope this isn't against rules. My apologies if it is.

Thoughts requested.

For my fic, I'm looking for a good name (Irish or English doesn't matter) for Tom's father. Right now I have a placeholder name of Seamus, but I'm not loving it and I'm drawing a blank have been since I first wrote the first draft of the chapter where his name is used back in Nov/Dec. Tom is named after his mother's father, Tom Quinlan. Any suggestions?

I'm happy to give credit to the poster who's suggestion I end up choosing.

Hmmm, I'll think of one to help you out. I have a bunch of names going through my mind right now but can't decide which one I like.

Mairin - Tom's eldest sister
Kevin - Mairin's husband
Mairin and Kevin's named children: Emmet, Brigid, Liam, Deirdre
Ciaran - Tom's older brother
Aileen - Ciaran's wife
Maeve - Ciaran's daughter
Niamh - Tom's older sister
Aedan - Tom's deceased younger brother (died as a baby)
Cathleen - Tom's youngest sister
Connor - Tom's youngest brother

The folks on the couples thread will have seen this, but I thought I'd share it here after Patano pointed it out on the other thread. It's a picture of Baby Branson using AL and JBF's photos:

I wanted to thank those posters who submitted names for consideration. I've put them in a pile and need time to think it over before I make a decision.

Also came by to say that I just posted the next chapter of my fic:

The Journey to Happiness (Chapter 20) - http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7666512/21/
