We all love Irish baby names—and even more for boys than for girls.
Just look at the US popularity list and you’ll see Liam at the top of the list, the highest Irish baby boy name ever. And yet though we’ve gone through the cycle of Ryan–Brian–Sean–Aidan/Aiden–Connor–Finn et al, that doesn’t mean there aren’t new discoveries to be made for both genders. And many with rich mythological backstories.

Some of them date back to ancient times and others were created in the 20th century. What do they all have in common?
They all start with the syllable Gal.
