Beyond Adien and Ashlynn

Thank you for all the suggestions on my other thread, it gave me a clearer idea of what I am looking for.

I would love some modern sounding Gaelic names or even traditional Gaelic names that have western variations. Names in that vein that I like but can’t use are:
[name_u]Aiden[/name_u]
[name_u]Maddox[/name_u]
[name_f]Ashlynn[/name_f]
[name_u]Ainsley[/name_u]
[name_u]Finn[/name_u]
[name_u]Conner[/name_u]
[name_m]Cormack[/name_m] (I might still use this one though)

I also really like [name_u]Bran[/name_u] but would want to use a longer version. I can’t wait to hear your ideas!

[name_f]Fiona[/name_f]
[name_f]Nola[/name_f]
[name_f]Bridget[/name_f]
[name_f]Deirdre[/name_f]
[name_f]Saoirse[/name_f]
[name_f]Ciara[/name_f]
[name_f]Catriona[/name_f]
[name_f]Maura[/name_f]/[name_f]Maire[/name_f]
[name_f]Aine[/name_f]
[name_f]Eileen[/name_f]
[name_f]Aoife[/name_f]
[name_m]Duane[/name_m]
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f]
[name_f]Sorcha[/name_f]
[name_f]Caoimhe[/name_f]

[name_m]Patrick[/name_m]
[name_u]Owen[/name_u]
[name_m]Brian[/name_m]
[name_m]Cillian[/name_m]
[name_m]Daley[/name_m]
[name_m]Eoin[/name_m]
[name_m]Torin[/name_m]
[name_u]Grady[/name_u]
[name_u]Keegan[/name_u]
[name_m]Lorcan[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m]
[name_m]Brogan[/name_m]
[name_u]Casey[/name_u]
[name_u]Brady[/name_u]
[name_u]Niall[/name_u]
[name_m]Brendan[/name_m]

I love so many of @[name_f]Estrela[/name_f]’s suggestions, especially [name_f]Bridget[/name_f], [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], [name_u]Owen[/name_u], and [name_u]Grady[/name_u]. Maybe:

[name_f]Molly[/name_f]
[name_f]Imogen[/name_f]
[name_u]Delaney[/name_u]
[name_u]Finley[/name_u]
[name_u]Quinn[/name_u]
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u]
[name_u]Teagan[/name_u]

[name_m]Liam[/name_m]
[name_m]Declan[/name_m]
[name_m]Ronan[/name_m]
[name_u]Rory[/name_u]
[name_u]Kieran[/name_u]
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u]

I should be clearer, while I love names like [name_f]Bridget[/name_f] (its actually on my list), [name_m]Patrick[/name_m], [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] and [name_f]Fiona[/name_f] those do not sound modern to an American ear and I am more looking for names like [name_u]Delaney[/name_u], [name_u]Maddox[/name_u], and [name_u]Teagan[/name_u] that have Gaelic roots but sound modern/trendy to the modern American ear.

Some ideas:

[name_u]Lennox[/name_u]
[name_u]Finlay[/name_u]
[name_u]Rory[/name_u]
[name_u]Flynn[/name_u]
[name_u]Quinn[/name_u]
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u]
[name_u]Maxwell[/name_u]
[name_u]Reagan[/name_u]
[name_u]Paisley[/name_u]

(Most of these are unisex)

So far I’m liking:
[name_u]Lennox[/name_u]
[name_m]Declan[/name_m]
[name_u]Teagan[/name_u]
[name_u]Delaney[/name_u]

I like [name_u]Rory[/name_u], [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] and [name_u]Quinn[/name_u] as well but they are too short for me to use on a real baby. I really love the name [name_u]Reagan[/name_u] but with the connection to the [name_m]President[/name_m] I don’t think i could use it.

I am also open to surnames as firsts
