Aodh Origin and Meaning

The name Aodh is a boy's name of Gaelic origin meaning "fire".
Aodh, the name of the Celtic sun god meaning fire, was common in early Scotland. But Aodh is unworkable in modern America--it would be better to go with the modern Anglicization: Hugh or the even newer Aiden. Pronounced 'ee', it's one of the less usable ancient mythological names.
