    Names with a similar feel - the magical and the Gaelic?

    Looking for suggestions of names that have a similar feel to these? I'm really drawn to names that feel ancient and have a strong history in the British Isles, especially Gaelic and Celtic names. They feel so magical to me and heavily tied to the landscapes that I miss so much!

    Iseabail / Ishbel
    Oona
    Eilidh (ay-lee)
    Gillian / Jill
    Esme
    Flora
    Ailbhe / Alva / Elva
    Imogen
    Faye / Fay
    Aoife (ee-fa)
    Ophelia
    Betsan / Betsy
    Lettice (luh-tees)
    Agnes
    Nairne (nare-knee)
    Bonnie
    Deira
    Cecilia
    Morag
    Cordelia
    Amabel / Anabel
    Eimear (ee-mer)
    Jessamy
    Orlaith (or-lah)
    Beatrix
    Yseult

    Anything you'd add? Anything that I might not have heard before? Thanks!

    Is Saerlaith pronounced something like SOR-lah? SUR-lah?
    I'm sort of fascinated by Sadhbh because it doesn't really feel like a name to me, even though it's really beautiful.

    Evanna is beautiful but I'd worry that people would confuse it for Ivanna/Ivana, or pronounce it with a long EE.

    It's more like SAYR-lah. (Which has always reminded me of sailor with an accent. haha) Also, it means "noble queen/noble princess," I thought I'd throw that out there. Yes, Sadhbh is lovely! Although, I prefer Sadb, but I suggested the Celtic spelling for you.

    Some more:
    Saorla
    Aife
    Teige
    Tierney
    Morrin
    Eavan
    Alastrina/Alastrine/Alastriona
    Tuilelaith
    Tulia/Tullia/Tulliah

    www.mummypages.ie/girls-irish-baby-names/ This is where I got most of those. It's a really good source, I believe!
