Irish Girl Names

This is a list of Irish baby names from Ireland and concentrates on Irish girl names and their meanings. Due to their Gaelic and Celtic origins, girl names from Ireland have a unique and slightly mysterious quality. Other gaelic girl names can be found on a seperate page as can Irish boy names. I have made NO distinction between Northern and Southern Irish names. Of course they are mainly first names but there are some Ireland family or Irish surnames also.

Irish naming Conventions - naming conventions in Ireland

In respect of Irish naming conventions, their is a certain Western european historical element with the naming convention being:

  1. The 1st daughter was usually named after the mother's mother
  2. The 2nd daughter was usually named after the father's mother
  3. The 3rd daughter was usually named after the mother
  4. The 4th daughter was usually named after the mother's eldest sister
  5. The 5th daughter was usually named after the father's eldest sister
Irish popular names (on our sister site) reflects this naming convention and has done for some considerable time.
