    Favourite Irish and Gaelic Girls Names?

    I'm not 100% sure if the two categories are the same, or separate, so, I'll separate them for this. I love Irish and Gaelic names for girls, and they seem to be a massive GP for me (so I'd likely only use most of them as a middle, unless by some odd, wonderful twist of fate, I'm whisked off to Ireland to live there forever and ever...), but I don't seem to have that many definite favourites.


    As of right now, I like;

    Aoife (Ee-fa)
    Roisin (Ro-sheen)
    Saoirse (Sear-sha/Sir-sha - I've heard both)
    Bridie
    Aoibheann
    Caitlin
    Keira/Ciara (I prefer the Keira spelling)
    Orlaith/Orla (I prefer the Orla spelling)
    Fallon (a big GP of mine)
    Kathleen
    Kelly

    When it comes to names from Irish and Gaelic origins, what are your favourites?
    Sophie Margaret ❀ Florence Emma ❀ Lola Katherine ❀ Layla Bethany ❀ Maisie Alice ❀
    Evelyn Adelaide ❀ Georgia Valentine ❀ Emilia Holly ❀ Mollie Annabelle ❀ Francesca Ruby ❀ Martha Lillian

    George Alexander ❀ Charlie Emerson ❀ Henry Lucas ❀ Matthew Benedict ❀ James Darcy ❀
    Ernest Daniel ❀ Louis Christopher ❀Albert Lachlan ❀ Miles Edward ❀ Thomas Allen ❀ Oscar William

    I love many of the ones you listed
    Aoife
    Roisin
    Saoirse
    Aoibheann (sometimes Irish names just look like a string of random letters lol, I love it!)
    Ciara (I am not a fan of Keira though)
    Orla

    Some other of my favourites:
    Ailbhe
    Caoimhe

    Fionnuala
    Iseult/Yseult
    Ailis
    Aisling
    Alana
    Eibhlin
    Eimear
    Meabh (I dislike Maeve though)
    Muireann
    Una
    Roise (I can't find a reliable source with this listed as a name so it might not be legit, but I really hope it is)

    Eilidh
    Ailsa
    Fiona
    Isobel
    Mairead
    Mairi
    Just a 19 year old weirdly obsessed with names, no babies in the near future

    Mairéad/Mairead is one of my favourites, and I love Caoimhe, Eibhlin, and Ailbhe. I have a bit of a guilty love for Orlaith, but only when it's mispronounced. I wish Or-layth were a name. :P

    Well I suppose in the US you could likely get away with Orlaith as Or-layth I've never seen it used here in North America, so I doubt many people would know any different, haha.
