Unfortunately, neither of those names has an Irish form as far as I know.

I'v seen Eric rendered as Eiric in Irish...

Yep...that's just a phonetic spelling, though, as far as I know.

Eric or Erik is of Scandinavian origin, meaning "ruler of all".

I too have never seen it Irish form, yet julius' version might be your best or closest bet.

Wait for more.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I even looked it up in the name book, both under Tanyon and Dar'tanyon thinking it was French or something. Unfortunately, no luck on finding that. I'll keep looking.

I keep thinking of Eric Banyon, who is the hero of Mercedes Lackey's "Bedlam's Bard" books.
