Irish Baby Names



Watch as Parents tells you about these Irish baby names! From a rich past into the present, these strong Irish names carry with them an equally powerful meaning. Honora is a baby name for girls that means the honorable one, and in the same breadth, Finn means white, named for the king. If you’re looking for girl names for a fair maiden all your own, Orla is the golden lady, and Maeve is named for the legendary queen. Declan means a man of prayer, perfect for those looking for a unique religious name. Some Irish first names are the same as American names but simply spelled differently. Keira is spelled Ceira, Ryan becomes Ria, and Aofie is pronounced like Eva. You can’t go wrong with traditional Irish names like Cullen, Liam, or Oona.
