Irish parenting website published 21 Irish girls' names. What’s your verdict?
From Caoimhe to Aoife, Irish girls' names, no matter how they’re spelled, are popular around the world and no more so than in the United States, where names like Erin, Shannon and Kelly are still popular. However, an Irish parenting website recently published a list of 21 Irish girls' names and we were quite surprised by their selections. In fact, we’re not sure they’re all Irish.
Magic Mum, based out of Sandyford in Dublin, posted a list of Irish baby girls' names with the headline, “These 21 Irish girl names are seriously stunning.” And they’re right. They go on to say that “there is something about the Irish language that makes names sound so mysterious… beautiful, elegant names that have an air of history, mystique and beauty.”
Well that’s Irish ladies for ye! We can’t disagree some of these are gorgeous baby names.
