AOIFE
Meaning: This is an Irish take on Eva or Ava and it’s pronounced similarly, this popular name means beautiful, radiant and joyful and is known as the greatest woman warrior in the world.

FIONNOULA

ART
Meaning: Short for Arthur in America, the name comes from the ancient word for ‘a bear’ and is used in the sense of outstanding warrior or champion.

DILLON
Meaning: An Irish spin on Dylan, it means “faithful,” “loyal” and “flash of lightning.”

CILLIAN
Pronounced “Kil-ee-in,” this is a fun Irish name any little boy could be proud of. Traditionally meaning “associated with the church,” the Gaelic spelling is “Cillín.”

KEEVA
With the same root as “Kevin,” Keeva means “beautiful” or “precious.” The original Irish spelling on this one is a doozy: “Caoimhe.” Yup, still pronounced “kee-va.”

ERNAN
Pronounced “air-nin,” Ernan means “iron,’ and it’s as strong a name as you can get. This is one of the few names with a spelling in Gaelic non-Irish speakers might actually want to use: “Eirnin.”

CAERA
This is one of those names that’s perfect for those who want something Irish, but not too crazy. It also has a beautifully simple meaning: “friend.”

DECLAN
Meaning “full of goodness,” Declan is a name that manages to be unique without being weird. The Irish spelling is also a perfect example of why Gaelic is so weird to us: “Deaglan.”

ALANNAH
This beautiful name has the simplest, most endearing meaning: “oh child.”

DARRAGH
Pronounced “di-re,” this is another name with no good English version (the closest thing is Dara). It can also be spelled “Daire,” and means “fruitful” or “fertile.”

GLENDON
This name is also sort of self-explanatory. The “glen-” prefix means exactly what it says, and “don” is “fortress,” so it means “person from the valley (or glen) fortress.”

CHEVONNE
The Gaelic spelling of this name is the mother of all awkwardly spelled Gaelic names: “Siobhan.” So unless you want your daughter saying, “no, it’s pronounced ‘shev-on,’ not ‘see-o-ban,'” you might want to go with the English spelling. Meaning “God is gracious,” it’s another one of those names that just has a pretty ring to it.

LIAM
This one is unique on this list: it’s the Irish version of “William,” which has German roots. It’s become very popular in Ireland lately, so your child may not be the only one sporting it, but that doesn’t make it any less cool.
