Celtic Choices: New baby announcements from Ireland and Scotland
By Linda Rosenkrantz
I must admit that I’m addicted to birth announcements. Not just to our own babyberries’—which are, of course, the best–but to any others I can lay my eyes on. I love the British choices that Elea posts regularly on BritishBabyNames.com, and also try to follow, among others, those in the Irish and Scottish newspapers.
Here are some entries that I’ve come across there recently, along with some particularly tasty sibling names that have been included–making a nice mix of authentic Gaelic names and cool modern choices.
ANNAN, sister of Torrin
JADIE and MASON— twins

I’ve been considering Titania lately. With casual/cool nickname Ti it is seeming more & more usable the more I think about it! I just worry about that word in the first 3 letters being an invitation to teasing 🙂

Wow, these names are beautiful! I especially love Cora Juliet, Isa Maria, Luc Joseph, Lucian Jeremiah Thomas, Orran Thomas, Hazel Agnes, Mirren Ruby, Warrick John, and Ewan Russell. My absolute favorite was Phoebe Matilda!!! I loved the new and unique names like Luc, Orran, Warrick, Annan, and Torrin. Great list – I love Celtic names.

I found Annan for a girl really interesting, I have only met two people called Annan and they are a father and son. I’ve always found it interesting and I suppose that it would work equally well for either gender.

I see Erin used in the Irish column. I wonder if the Irish will begin to adopt Erin broadly, as we did in the 1970s.
I love Ciaran Patrick and Niamh, especially, but I don’t like Niamh’s middle name Kathryn spelled with a ‘y.’ Katherine is far, far lovelier.
Lachlan’s a good one. I always thought Liam (Irish), Logan (Scottish), Lachlan (Scottish), and Lorcan (Irish) would make a nice sibset.

You forgot Cora Juliet’s twin, Charlie Gabriel….

I see a Downton Abbey influence – Aimee Violet, Cora Juliet, Avery Violet, Daisy.
