Gealic Girl Baby Names

This is a collection of pages which concentrates on a list of popular Gaelic baby girl female names and their meanings. The site concentrates mainly on first names or Christian names as they are known in most western European countries, but their are also some Scotland family or Scottish surnames also, but all can be used as baby names.

The female(girl) baby names listed here are from Gaelic Origin/Language/Culture with Gaelic Boy names listed on another page. Scottish Gaelic or Gaelic is the traditional language of the Gaels. Gaelic is an Indo-European language spoken in Scotland (but declining in popularity and mainly in the remote Highlands) and Southern Ireland (EIRE). The Gaelic alphabet only has 18 letters with each traditionally being named after trees.

The history of Gaels, or Goidels (as they are sometimes referred to with Goidelic languages forming a dialect continuum from Ireland through the Isle of Man and "ending" in Scotland), goes as far as the 4th century.

In addition I have also started to add Celtic baby names and these are clearly marked along with their meaning and pronunciation (where possible). Elsewhere on the site you will also find Celtic girl names along with their meaning
