Can someone show me the gaelic spelling for the name Sean? I want to have my son's name tattoo'd under the angel I have on my back. My son died 2 years ago, and I thought this would be a nice time to add his name to reflect his Irish heritage.
thanks

This is correct.

"Seán" is already an Irish name. English drops the accent over the "a"...that's the only difference (it's an important one in Irish, though...without the accent, "Seán" becomes "sean"..."old"!).

:gut: Don't forget the fada over the "a". It's critical.
