Hello!

I was hoping I could get a little help with the correct translation of “happiness” for a tattoo I was wanting to get. I’ve used this forum before and it was great so hopefully someone can be of help.

Thanks,

Brendan

Sonas "happiness, good luck, good fortune"
Séan "good luck, prosperity, happiness, joy"

Sonas and séan often get paired together:

sonas agus séan "happiness and joy"
séan agus sonas "joy and happiness"

The order doesn't matter.

Another option:

Suaimhneas "(inner) peace, tranquility, quietness, rest"

Await further input ...
