Post subject:  Steáfán Hannigan's name

The name Steáfán, if the fadas are included, seems to be unique to Steáfán Hannigan, at least in googledom.

The usual Irish version of Stephen is Stiofán.

I would have expected Steáfán to be pronounced something like SHTAW-fawn, but here's the man himself at 0:49 ...

... telling us "Hi, I'm Steáfán!" and pronouncing it STEFF-'n.

Anybody know why he got this unique name?
