    A girl I know named her boy Keevan which is the male form of Caiomhe/Keeva - Looked up the Gaelic spelling and it's Caoimheán. I like Finnegan but reminds me of a rhyme someone used to sing in primary school.
    As someone mentioned above, not sure on the name popularity in Ireland - I'm from Glasgow so a good few Irish Gaelic names pop up now and then.
    For girls, I'm pretty sure Orlaith (Or-la) is popular though, as it's rising here.
    How about Aerin (Ae-rin or Eh-rin) - apparently it means Ireland, according to Thinkbabynames.com
    Brannagh (Bran-nah), Caoilainn (Cay-lin), Caragh/Caera (Car-a), Darcy (Dars-ae), Maebh (May-v), Rhari (Rory)

    this is the site I seen a few on - http://www.babynamesofireland.com/irish-girl-names


    Boys - I quite like Seamus with nn Shay. It's cute. But you're pretty much sorted with boy names by the looks of things!

    Dia dhuit,
    Well...If you are set on something super unusual, I do like your idea of using the surname Rafferty. As you´re Irish I generally would recommend against asking Americans for Gaelic name ideas. All those Irish name lists for Americans are full of errors. Just look at some of the broad/slender vowel errors and pronunciation errors above. Trying to avoid top ONE THOUSAND using Gaelic names in Ireland sounds really really hard. Do you mean that literally? By the way, I do love Orla in all its spellings as one commentor suggested. What about Eilis or Sibeal (no fada button here sorry) ? I was just thinking of unusual gaelicisations of names. Like your ideas anyway and I would never worry about being too matchy, but that´s just me.
    Good luck!

    Congratulations on your quads! I'm quite American and know very little about Gaelic names, but I do really like Tiarnan (sp? I've always seen it spelled Tiernan in America, but if you use the original spellings for all the others, I would definitely keep to the traditional here!), Rafferty, Finnegan, Ruaidhri, Aoife, and Saoirse. Most of the Gaelic/Irish names I like and can think of will probably be to mainstream to you... but I have a friend who lives in Ireland and is a member of this site, so I'll PM her for you and see if she has any great ideas to pass along. For what it's worth, I think Rafferty, Finnegan, Aoife, and Saoirse would be perfect for quadruplets!

    Good luck!

    I know that these may be in the top 1000, but what about Riley? I love that name! How about using it for a girl? Rhylee maybe?
    I also like: Liam, Brody and Declan.
    Not too sure about girls names, i do like Kiera and Tallulah though.

    Let us know what you pick! Good luck and Congrats!

    I believe that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.
