Irish-ish(!) boys name

(42 Posts)

Hi all,
DC 2 is due in a few weeks, we don't know the sex. We have a short list of girls names (none are Irish btw!), but are really stuck for boys names.
Ds1 has an English spelling of an Irish name. Our surname is a common Irish name (English language)
We like fairly traditional names, nothing too "out there" for small town Ireland!

Any suggestions?

My earlier post seems to have disappeared!
Thanks for all the suggestions. Really liking Cillian, Cian and Niall. DS's name has been suggested a few times smile, glad to see that it's popular. It's not a name we hear too often where we live!
A few other names suggested I love, but are the names/v similar to names of our nephews.

Thanks again!

How is Daithi pronounced?

I love Caobhinn (Keeveen) for a boy.

My favourite Irish boy’s name is Jarlath. For girls I like Breige

Is that a euphemism missy 😄

missyB1 Tue 31-Oct-17 21:50:21

gringrin Herat at least he’s not called John Thomas (I have actually met a guy called that!)

Suki where I'm at it's pronounced Da-He. One of the nicest Irish boys name IMO

The more "standard" Irish names for boys that I can think of are:

Conor
Sean
Seamus
Ciaran
Micheal
Tomas
Rory/Ruairi
Aidan
Conall

Most people should be familiar with them and not too many tricky spelling issues!

I also love Fiachra, Donnchadh and Naoise but may cause more issues depending where you live.
