8 struggles every Fionnuala must put up with

Is it… Fiona?

GATHER ROUND, FIONNUALAS of the world, as we pay homage to your struggles.

1. What even is Fionnuala?

Sure, to Irish eyes it’s a perfectly reasonable name and everyone knows how to spell it, but take a step back. Look at all those Ns and vowels. Imagine you’re seeing it for the first time. Imagine how flummoxed you’d be.


Fionnualas know what we mean. They’ve been dealing with it their whole lives.

2. They’re dealing with it in Spain

3. They’re dealing with it in Britain

4. They’re dealing with it in Starbucks

5. Like, really dealing with it

6. It’s not Fiona, ok?

7. “Fallopian tubes”

8. It’s ok though, fellow Fionnualas are there for you

Stay strong, Fionnualas.
