Looking for a Good Irish Name for a Beer-Series

Hey There My new girlfriend is absolutely in love with Ireland. Because i am brewing beer I decided to make a little irish series "for her" (Irish Red, Irish Stout, and so on).

My beers are ususally categorised in Series (Standard Series, Civil Disobedience Series, Sour Series). I ned now a name for this Irisch series. And because i am so hard in love with this girl i thought i could call it something like "In Love Series" "Love Series" but i am not satisfied with this ideas. Perhaps in irish it would be less uninspired... =D In German we say "to have butterflyes in the belly" which i find pretty cute an would be more something like i am looking for. But in english it sounds a little bit weird =D

So... do anyone have ideas? Best would be if the name was in irish, not just english. Thanks for your help!

Cheers

That idiom exists in English as “to have butterflies (in the stomach)”, although in English it doesn’t exclusively refer to being in love. I can’t comment on how weird it might sound to a native German speaker.

[does] anyone have ideas?

Leannán means “lover” or “favorite”, but it could also be parsed as a diminutive of leann, “ale”. Perhaps Sraith mo leannáinse, “Series of my lover/favorite/alekin”, „Serie meiner Geliebter/meines Lieblings/meines Älechens“? You did note that it would be a little Irish beer series … ;*)

An okay name I thought of for an Irish Red is dearg-ghrá which means "intense love" but literally translates as "red-love"

Looking at the various definitions of "rún" on www.teanglann.ie, I would suggest "Mo rún", as it would have a couple of different possible (all good) meanings.
