Irish-Gaeilge and Scottish-Gallic are quite different but sometimes share similar names, although not all Scottish/Irish names are from Gaelic languages. Welsh-Cymraeg names are from a whole different root again but share some of the confusing phonetics.
These are some of my favourites that haven't been suggested yet (I don't think), bolded are the ones that I think are most usable out of the UK. Lots of them are in Anglicized forms...
Ailbhe / Alva
Twila (Anglicization of Tuilelaith ''twill-lay-lah'')
Aine / Anya - Eithne can be translated similarly to Enya (but is sometimes Etna/Ethna)
Eibhlin / Evelyn
Brigh / Bree
Eilis / Eilish
Eimear / Emer ''ee-mer''
Cliodhna / Cliona
Orlaith / Orla
Ceitidh / Katie
Iseabail / Ishbell
Mhairi (''VAR-ee'') or Mari (''MAR-ee'')
Teasag (often nicknamed Jessie)
(sorry for the lack of names on the Welsh front, they're not really my thing although some are really magical)
much love and i are waiting for you;
