This is not the proper irish spellng

the traditional irish spelling is CONOR the two "N's" is for a last name. this name is traditionally male but it is a girls name as well because i am a girl and that is what my parents named me. They got the name from the book Trinity about the war between the irish and the British. one of the leaders was conor with one "n" i am proud of this name and i think it should be considered to be both a male and female name!

My name is Connor, and I am a girl. I absolutely love my name; I think it fits me perfectly, but I'm glad that not a lot of people (boys or girls) have this name. I think it needs to fit a lot more than a "Jessica" or "Caitlin" would, and it doesn't really matter what the original spelling of the name is, we can make it whatever we want and I love the spelling of mine.
If I have a boy...

If I have a boy then we are going to name him Tommy Connor. We got Tommy after my husbands uncle who passed, and when we came across Connor we just fell in love with it.

I am of Irish decent living in Australia, and I love this spelling. I do want to name any children in the future the orginal Irish way, for first names. I do however like all the ways Conor can be spelled. I like the meaning and the heritage it comes with.
I spec like how someone have taken from family and spelled it Connor,it will mean more to them and him growing up

thanks
