Popular Names in Ireland

Popular names in Ireland are a mix of traditional names popular throughout the English-speaking world — Emma and Mia, James and Noah — and native Irish names such as Fiadh and Conor.

Along with Fiadh and Conor, Irish names that rank among Ireland's Top 25 baby names include Aoife, Éabha, and Saoirse for girls, and Liam, Fionn, and Oisin for boys. Other top Irish names not often heard outside the Emerald Isle include Clodagh, Sadhbh, and Croía for girls, and Cillian, Tadhg, and Darragh for boys.

Note that the Irish surname-names most popular for girls in the US, such as Riley and Kennedy, do not rank among the top girl names in Ireland. Top Irish girl names in the US and internationally include Maeve and Nora. The leading Irish boy names in the US and other European countries are Liam and Finn.
