Irish Boy Names

Hey everyone! I’m back to finish up the Irish baby names. I have the boy names for you. I’ll be putting the Irish names in parentheses and if they don’t have English names or I like the Irish name more I’ll just put that. So let’s get started.
  1. Cian- It’s pronounced key-in and means ancient enduring.
  2. Cillian- It’s pronounced kil-e-an and means associated with the church. There is a saint Cillian.
  3. Conall- It’s pronounced kun-al and can also be spelled Connall. The English spelling is Connell. It means friendship.
  4. Conan- It means little warrior.
  5. Cormac- It means son of charioteer. You can also spell it Cormack and Cormick.
  6. Lochlan- It’s pronounced lok-linn and can also be spelled Lochlann. Lochlan means land of the lochs.
  7. Malachi- It’s pronounced Mala-ki and means my angel, or messanger of God.
  8. Niall- It’s pronounced nye-al. Niall could mean passionate, vehement or come from nel and mean a cloud.
  9. Pierce- It can also be spelled Pearse and Pearce and comes from the French name Piers.
  10. Riordan- It’s pronounced reer-don and means king poet and royal poet.
  11. Ronan- It means seal.

So those are all of the names. There aren’t as many as the girls because I don’t like Irish names on boys as much as I like them on girls. Which names are your favorites? Let me know in the comments below. That’s all for today. Tomorrow I will be doing the second link up with The Name Nook. Bye for now :)
