Irish Baby Names

Popular Irish names for boys and girls

Top Irish Baby Names

Irish names are found all over the world, but remain deeply routed to traditional origins. Remember to consider how the first, middle and last names sit and sound together when choosing. Any baby would be proud to have a traditional Irish name such as the ones below, so read on and get inspired.

Irish baby names are common within many western countries, this is mainly due to the Irish diaspora in the last 200 or so years. However, going back further, Irish names have a few origins, usually surrounding key historical events.

For example; St. Patrick was largely responsible for converting Ireland to Christianity, giving the reason for Christian, Aramaic and Hebrew baby names being commonplace (the 12 Apostle names have always been popular baby boy names). Combined with other influences, such as Norse and Gaelic and the result is a varied and unique set of names, often sounding magical, musical and mystical.

Check out Welsh baby names and Scottish baby names for similar style names for your child.
