Pronounce Caolán!

    So, I have a wee leanbh on the way and shortlisting names. One is Caolán. Now I'm originally from west of Ireland (Sligo to be accurate) and my pronunciation of this name seems to be different than some other peoples from the north or from other dialects. So I'm wondering if this name is one of those that is dependant on dialect?

    I'd pronounce it closer to "Kway-lawn". But other people have varied from:

    Kay-lan
    Kwee-lawn
    Kee-lan

    I like Kway-lawn best, but I'm now doubting my pronunciation? How would you pronounce it? Or is this one of those dialect things?

    Go raibh math agaibh!
