Irish Girl Names

Irish girl names have long been a favorite both in Ireland and beyond, as the Irish have emigrated to the US and many other countries around the world. Bridget and Kathleen were early Irish girl name imports to the US, followed by Shannon and Erin. Today, the top Irish names for girls in the US are the gender-neutral surname-names Riley, Kennedy, and Quinn, with the mythical Maeve and jolly Molly also in favor.

Irish girl names popular in Ireland itself include Aine, Fiadh, and Aoife. Irish female names popularized by celebrities include Saoirse and Sinead. If you’re looking for an Irish name for your baby girl, browse our complete selection here.
