Check Out These Cute Irish Baby Names You’ve Probably Never Heard Before

These Irish baby names are making a huge comeback.

I know what you’re thinking – Liam, Finn, Kathleen, Patrick and Kevin are all names we’ve heard before when it comes to the Irish baby name generator. But little do we know, there are a good handful (or more) of baby names that come from the Emerald Isle that we haven’t heard of before. I mean, why settle with a Finn when you can have a Fintan, right?

Better yet, you can also dig deep into your Celtic roots by giving your newborn baby a common Irish name like Aofie, Aralt, or one of my favorites, Mannix.

Check out some of our favorite Irish names that are widely used in Ireland today, but yet are completely unknown in the United States. And a special shout out to my friend Brona, who I used to work with during my two-year stint in Galway (I’m eventually going to come back for that soda bread * wink *).

And BTW, I’m totally keeping Fia as one of my future baby name ideas, JIC.
