Irish Names for Girls

Irish names for girls include those with various kinds of Celtic and Gaelic influence, Anglo-Irish forms of names from elsewhere and Irish surnames that have transitioned into first names. The most popular Irish names for girls in the US these days are surname names such as Riley, Kennedy, and Quinn. Other Irish girls' names newly popular in the US include Maeve and Saoirse, as in actress Ronan. In Ireland itself, the most popular girls' names include some choices rarely heard outside of Ireland, such as Aoife and Fia. Irish girls' names are, naturally, very popular in Ireland and in the global Irish diaspora. But with soft sounds and a surfeit of vowels, Irish girls' names carry plenty of charm for all parents.
