St. Patrick's Day: Irish Girl Names


Hey guys! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I figure in honor of St. Patrick ’s Day I would do post about Irish baby names. I’m going to do the girls name first and then I’ll do the boy names. I actually like quite a few Irish baby names. I’ll put the Irish names in parenthesis and if they don’t have English names I’ll just put the Irish names. So let’s get started.

Girls
  1. Alby (Ailbe)- Pronounced all-bay. It means white.
  2. Aileen- It’s Pronounced ay-leen and can also be spelled Ailene. The meaning is noble.
  3. Aoife- pronounced ee-fa. It means beautiful radiant and joyful.
  4. Branna- It can also be spelled Brannagh and is pronounced bran-na. Branna means raven.
  5. Brona (Bronagh)- It’s pronounced Bro-nah and means sad, sorrowful .
  6. Keeva (Caoimhe)- It means gentle, beautiful and precious.
  7. Cleona- It can also be spelled Cliona and is pronounced klee-ona. It means shapely.
  8. Enya (Eithe/Eitna)- Its pronounced en-ya and means kernel of a nut or seed or little fire.
  9. Enda- It means bird.
  10. Finola (Fionnoula)- It’s pronounced finn-ula and means fair, white, beautiful.
  11. Ida- It means thirst.
  12. Iona- It’s pronounced I-o-na and means blessed.
  13. Keela- It’s pronounced Kee-la and means beautiful.
  14. Kyla- It’s pronounced kie-la and means beautiful.
  15. Kyna- It’s pronounced key-na and means love, affection, and esteem.
  16. Maire- It’s pronounced my-ra and the English name is Mary.
  17. Nola- Nola is used as a nickname for Finola.
  18. Orla (Orlaith)- It’s pronounced or-la and means golden princess.

So those are all of the girl names. Look for the boy names either later tonight or tomorrow. I hope you had a happy St. Patty’s Day! Let me know what you thought of this post and don’t forget to comment, Bye for now :).
