St. Patrick’s Day Baby Names: Irish melody makers

Kick up your heels, get out your shillelagh and prepare to dance a jig as we celebrate St. Paddy’s Day with twelve musical Irish names—some of which were introduced to us by musicians who, as a bonus, taught us the right way to pronounce them.


Though Harry Styles of One Direction may get more teen attention, we favor his Irish-named bandmate Niall Horan. An ancient Irish name associated with a powerful fifth century king, Niall is currently a Top 100 name in Ireland, Number 475 on Nameberry.
