Shane
Shane is a masculine given name. It is an Anglicised version of the Irish name Seán, which itself is cognate to the name John. Shane comes from the way the name Seán is pronounced in the Ulster dialect of the Irish language, as opposed to Shaun or Shawn.
Séamus
Séamus (Irish pronunciation: [ˈʃeːməs]), is a male first name of Celtic origin. It is the Gaelic equivalent of the name James. The name James is the English New Testament variant for the Hebrew name Jacob. It entered the Irish and Scottish Gaelic languages from the French variation of the late Latin name for Jacob, Iacomus; a dialect variant of Iacobus, from the New Testament Greek Ἰάκωβος (Iákōvos), and ultimately from Hebrew word יעקב (Yaʻaqov), i.e. Jacob. Its meaning in Hebrew is "one who supplants" or more literally "one who grabs at the heel". When the Hebrew patriarch Jacob was born, he was grasping his twin brother Esau's heel.
Seamus
Seamus, also Séamus [ˈʃeɪməs], is a male first name of Irish origin meaning one that replaced (occurs at a different location). The name goes back to the Hebrew name Jacob; James is the anglicised form.
Shaun
Shaun [ʃɔːn] is an Irish male name.
