From my in-depth anthro-linguistical research (10 minutes on google), it appears that the name Irene is from the Greek language and means "peace." We would like to give our new daughter a Hebrew name that somehow references Irene, though, based on my research, there does not appear to be a direct Hebrew analogue. "Shalom" for "peace" seems too generic. It could just be something that sounds kinda like Irene. Any thoughts?
