Irish names

Marked by the history and legends of yesteryear, the Irish landscapes offer unique scenery with large green plains and exceptional cliffs. But, in addition to the fact that Ireland has an incredible cultural and natural heritage, it is also known by its Celtic names. Irish names are derived from the ancestral language of Ireland: the Gaelic language. This Celtic language is exclusively spoken in Ireland and still resonates in the first names chosen by Irish parents although today they have gradually become anglicized.


On the other hand, it is also interesting to note that many of the leading names of the 1990s are actually Irish names. So, if you are a fan of retro first names, you should find your happiness in the list of Irish names below.

Ireland is now known for its own symbols such as St. Patrick's Day, one of the most celebrated holidays in the world. Occasionally, Irish pubs and old taverns are filled with the crowd accompanied by good Irish beers. Another symbol you probably know is the clover. Symbol of luck, it represents the chance to wait for a new being in your family. So choosing an Irish name makes sense with this happy event.


But, if you are a fan of fiction you should know that Ireland is also known now for its landscapes that were used as film locations in Game of Thrones or Star Wars. You can also choose a first name for your favourite hero or heroine.
