    I think you have to download the newest list to your computer, add names, save changes and then upload it again. I think. ;)

    @ Cat,
    I think you haven't used the last Excel file to add Slovenian names, because there is no Serbian now in your list...

    Why don't you put the gagauzian names into the turkish name's list.! Actually most of the names on this list are used as christian names and so that's not a pretty good idea to add the turkish names' column for this chart. but gagauzian names...

    I have added some equivalents in the Irish language.

    Some notes: As we have a culture which predates Judeo-Christian arrival to Ireland, and Irish/Celtic culture was not overrun by the Romans, we have hundreds of other, more commonly used Irish language names. I have not added these to the list as that is not the object of the original exercise.

    Some of these Irish names are versions of the international names [Charles/Searlas (pronounced Shar-les].
    Some of them are older Irish names which are often used as equivalents, even though they bear no relation [Charles / Cathal (pronounced Coh-hol].

    John is an interesting example. The Irish for John is Eoghan [pronounced Owen] but when the Normans came in 1166, some of them were called "Jean". As there is no "dj" sound in Irish, the local population called them "Séan" (pronounced "Shaun"). James/Séamus has a similar origin from later times when the English came to Ireland.
