Niamh is an Irish name so English pronunciation doesn't apply. Roisin is also Irish and is pronounced Ro-SHEEN. Aoife is EE-fa. Siobhan is SHU-vorn. The pronunciations might not make sense in English but that's what they are. I think the original spelling Niamh looks prettier and classier. It depends where you live, I live in England and popular Irish names are quite commonly used over here, so most people know how to pronounce them.
