Irish Girls Names

Apr 14th, 2008, 14:20 PM   #1
 
Anyone know any Irish girls names?? The book I have doesn't have many in and OH would like an Irish name if we have a girl (got the boy name sorted!!) I like the name Isla, but apparently that's Scottish!!

Help!

Best bet is to buy a book of Irish baby names - lots on amazon

My middle name is Siobhan which I love and a lot of my close friends call me.

My sisters middle name is Shannon which is very Irish but also very popular, my cosins name is Ailish witht the second name Erin which I also love.

We have an Irish Granny so all the girls got given an Irish name. I'm a big fan of Irish names for girls but all my favourites have been used up on family

Niamh - I absolutely love that name and actually wanted that if we had a girl but OH said no because no one would know how to pronounce it

I have a Mhairi, althought it's strictly Scottish it is Gaelic.

Pronounced Var-eeee.

I loved Niamh, as sweetcheeks said. I also like Maobh, which can be spelt Maeve.

Aoife - Ee fa, like Eva

Caoimhe - Kee va

I like gaelic names....can you tell!?!?!
