    My favorite Irish names are Kieran/Ciaran and Siofra.

    Personally, I prefer the Gaelic spellings, for the most part. The more people are named Niamh instead of Neve, the more previously ignorant people will learn that Niamh = Neve.

    I'm not crazy about Irish boy's names, but my favourite is probably Rory. For girls, I like Nora and Niamh, spelt this way. Maeve is quite nice, although I don't know why but generally I'm not really seeing the appeal for it. I found this list of Irish names although I'm not sure how reliable it is:

    I love Rory and Nora. I like the girls name Roisin (ro-sheen...little rose). Also love Shane and Tadgh (not sure if I spelled that right). It's a boys name pronounced like tiger without the R.
