    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?
    haley/happy birthday to me/officially nineteen.

    Girls: Doris, Georgiana, Amelia, Lillian, Edna, Clara, Minnie, Mabel, Arabella

    Boys: Matthew, Christopher, Daniel, Louis, Ernest, James, Joshua, Harrison, Henry

    Orla

    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.
