Irish baby names, drawn from rich Gaelic and Celtic languages full of poetry and romance, are always popular baby names. The term "Irish names" is a broad term, and includes not just those names with their roots in Ireland, but also Irish versions of names from other cultures, and even American versions of Irish names. This list of popular Irish baby names includes all of these types, with an emphasis on original Irish roots and spelling. The pronunciation is included when it seems helpful -- only the native Irish are going to pronounce "Aoibheann" correctly, the first time they encounter this beautiful girl's name! (You'll find the pronunciation below.) If you would like to see more Irish baby names, try using our Advanced Search tool. In the box for "origin" click on "Irish." This will bring up hundreds of Irish names to consider.

Finally, be sure to take a look at our guest interview with Dublin-based writers John Gallagher and Eithne Diamond, authors of the enchanting "My Name Is..." series.
