I think that "ceilidh" is the Irish/celtic word for a musical celebration - but I thought it was pronounced "hoo-lee".

Congrats on your dear new little lady.

Yeah, we heard that too. As far as we know, the "hoo-lee" pronounciation is Irish and "KAY-lee" is the Scottish way of saying it. For more info you can check out http://www.answers.com/topic/ceilidh
Oh, and I guess we'll give you about 950 points for that response- ah, what the heck, you were the first to respond, you get the full thousand. Sofie's looking forward to meeting you in person!

Congratulations Josh and Katie. She is beautiful. Did you notice a difference when Sofia was born? Did you feel like a parent right away. I remember that wonderful feeling at my first kid.

Hey there Josh & Katie. Sofia Ceilidh is beautiful! Congrads... Here is what is found out about her middle name which to Butch and I fit you two to the T!
The 'ceilidh' is a literary entertainment where stories and tales, poems and ballads, are rehearsed and recited, and songs are sung, conundrums are put, proverbs are quoted, and many other literary matters are related and discussed.
It's Irish, Scottish.
God Bless you two and your new wee little one. Love, Jeri
