Trying to draw up a shortlist and lacking some inspiration. What are your favourite Irish boy names? I don't want anything too unusual but I just keep feeling I'm missing something when I look at books or online lists. Surname is short, one syllable

Dylan
Ronan

Thanks all. Adding Aidan to my list and thanks for making me think about Tiernach. Not quite loving the long O sounds like Rory or Donal. Or the Sh sound anywhere throughout the name. I don't seem to know what I do like until I hear it.

Please keep them coming!

Patrick is the best name in the world! Ours was almost a Seamus, which I love too. I also lile Aidan, Cian and Oran. My DH doesn't want another Irish name this time though. X

Patrick isn't an Irish name though.

Met two Irish young men on Saturday called Cillian and Malachy.

Both lovely names ( and lovely lads).

Paris I love your names.

Tadhg I have cousin with this name. I hope I spelt it right. There is a couple of Michaels in the family.
