A good place to start is
but many nicknames (Delia for Bridget) (Peggy for Margaret) will throw you
off. On the Irish side of my family, some of the girls were addressed by
their middle names.
My great grandmother was call Delia for so long that when she was burried,
she was burried as Delia, not Bridget.

Is there a cross reference somewhere for Irish first names? Growing up, I
could never understand why some people called my grandmother Sarah, Sadie. I
recently came across a picture of two cousins, except the female was called
Alice instead of Ann. Now I'm wondering, are Alice/Ann one and the same or
I encountered another branch of my family tree.
