|Sean is the correct spelling of that name. John is the English equivalent of it. Though I have seen it spelled Sean, Shaun and Shawn, and once had a school female friend called Shauna.|
Most English names have an Irish equivalent...example Seamus is James.
I have been called Guinevere on quite a few occasions, and I don't know why, as this is nothing similar to my name...I don't think it is the Irish equivalent either.
Miss Grundy has a very beautiful Irish name, if she wishes to share.
Traveller how have you connected sheep shearing with the spelling of the name Shawn? Hope I haven't asked a silly obvious question.

|The only time I have seen the name Iseult was in reading Irish History, she was the daughter of Maud Gonne. |
A very kind person has just sent me an email explaining that my name is Guinevere in Cornwall, and Genevieve in French. That explains why I have been called these variants of my name.
This place is a wonderful hove of information.
Edit: I wouldn't know Alma if Miss Pettigrew's name was that, as I never watch blue movies, but I'll take your word for it.

|Iseult, Maud Gonne had her children before she married Sean MacBride, to a Frenchman Lucien Millevoye, who was a journalist and politician.|
Yes Guinevere - is that the lady in the lake?
I have never heard of Tristan and Isolde, but will have to look it up now.
Here you are Miss Grundy.
The only reason I know is because I have almost every book on Yeats; and his love affair with her/or lack of, is so sad and heart wrenching...they should've been lovers.

|I do love names and their meanings ... |
My son is named Callum Jareth .. His first name is after his paternal great grandfather and means Dove, the Jareth part is purely down to lustful ogling over David Bowie in Labyrinth ..
My daughter is Drew Madison .. Drew means strength and beloved, oh and her dad fancied the pants off Drew Barrymore at the time, so I guess that might have something to do with it.. Madison, well sadly that has no reasoning behind it other than it went well with Drew and her surname ..
I love unusual names, I toyed with Mitchell and Malachai and Leilani ( which means heavenly blossom in Hawaiian) ..
I was also influenced by people I knew who shared a name with one that was being banded about as a prospective moniker for my offspring ..I love the name Brett but the one Brett I know is a very strange person and I didn't want those connotations constantly in the back of my mind ...
Very few people are truly happy with their names anyway.. So I guess it's just luck of the draw ..

If you are interested in numerology .... - it's a very exact science you know.

|I'm not fussed on silly outragous names and feel for the kids called trixabelle and apple n such.|
I gave 1 of my sons a very unusual name and he still to this day at 11 gets called Callum
His name is Cailem pronounced like kay-lem not friggin Callum really winds me up.
My other son is called Marlon and it really fecked me off just after he was born when my aunt kept calling him Merlin.
