Our favourite boys names are Ruairidh and Aedan. Any other Gaelic influenced boy name suggestions? We prefer names which arent too "out there"

Any help appreciated grinflowers

Daithí is Irish for David. I think it's a lovely name. It's pronounced like D-th-aa hee. But the th bit is really subtle. I don't really know how to explain it!

Darragh and Callan are both going on the list.

I love Struan but it's the name of one of my oldest friends and not sure about whether it would be weird to use that.

When you say Gaelic were you looking for names from any particular country?

FairfaxAikman Sun 11-Mar-18 07:26:17

By Gaelic I assume you mean Scottish, rather than Irish?

My family is Scottish, my husband's Irish. So I tend to prefer Scottish names but he doesn't agree!

Some great suggestions here thanks everyone flowers

Padraig, the Irish for Patrick. Sorley, which is the anglicisation of Somhairle, from the Old Norse Somarliðr meaning ‘summer traveller’.
