Favorite Irish names - Boys

What is your favorite Irish name for a little boy? Excited to see your favorites!!


[name]Oisin[/name] is my current favourite - I also love [name]Kian[/name], [name]Declan[/name] and [name]Ronan[/name]

[name]Eoin[/name] (prn [name]Owen[/name]).


[name]Donovan[/name] (obviously look at my sig, haha)
[name]Cathal[/name] (kuh-hall)
[name]Niall[/name] (nile)
[name]Finnegan[/name] ([name]Finn[/name])

I love:

[name]Brody[/name] (granted, some of these are Scottish. Like [name]Brody[/name]. But I usually clump Irish, Scottish, and Gaelic names together, so I’m not 100% sure which are Scottish and which are Irish)
[name]Jack[/name] (not technically Irish, but very popular in [name]Ireland[/name] for years)
[name]Gavin[/name] (although, I believe this is Welsh?)

[name]Ronan[/name] (probably my favourite)…followed by [name]Finnegan[/name], [name]Rowan[/name], and [name]Rory[/name].

Well, I have a [name]Liam[/name] (which I understand is overdone in some parts of the country, but is still comfortably uncommon here in the middle where we live), a [name]Declan[/name], and am about to have a [name]Niall[/name] (unless I get majorly cold feet in the last 3.5 weeks!). My brothers are [name]Rory[/name] and [name]Patrick[/name]. So I’d have to say, those five are my favorites!

[name]Darragh[/name] is my favourite, but I also like [name]Seamus[/name] and [name]Seoirse[/name] (SHOR-sa).


[name]Aidan[/name] - spelt this way only. There’s a St. [name]Aidan[/name]'s church in my hometown that I was never a member of but remember fondly.
[name]Malachy[/name] - I love Biblical [name]Malachi[/name], but I also love this Irish spin on it.
[name]Liam[/name] - but do not want to use it with our last name. I like it with others though.


Sadly my husband ([name]Sean[/name]) point blank refuses to consider anything with a non-phoenetic spelling…

I like


I named my son Sheamus. I added the h because people were calling him, “Seemus” before he was even born. It’ s the perect name for him.

[name]Sean[/name],[name]Aidan[/name] and [name]Liam[/name] are my favorites! It is so manly and handsome name!
