Why are you tattooing your name on you? In case you forget/get lost? Maybe just tattoo on a postal address then they can just stick a stamp on you and post you off?

But seriously i'm not sure hannah has an irish form. Is it Biblical?

Never heard hannah being translated as Áine. Names don't really translate. Frequently you just come up with existing names in that language that most approximate to your own. In this case Áine(don't forget the accent over the a) would be appropriate, but its comes from the name of a gaelic love goddess, nothing to do with the grace of god as far as i know.

Hi. I've just found Siobhán for Hannah in two different websites, and Ánna in a third one. :nixweiss:

In the Bible it's spelled Hanná... but I don't know if that's actually in use as a modern Irish name or not.

Yes i've a feeling that calling you áine would only make it half as much of a commitment. You'd want to look out for any annes you know just in case he's looking for a suitable painless replacement.
