This is a collection of pages which concentrates on popular Gaelic baby Boys names and their meanings. Of course they are mainly first names or Christian names as they are known in some countries, but their are some Scotland family or Scottish surnames also but all can be used as baby names.
The male(boy) baby names listed here are from Gaelic Origin/Language/Culture. Scottish Gaelic or Gaelic is the traditional language of the Gaels. Gaelic is an Indo-European language spoken in Scotland (but declining in popularity and mainly in the remote Highlands) and Southern Ireland (EIRE). The Gaelic alphabet only has 18 letters with each traditionally being named after trees. You can use the menu to the left to select what country you wish and whether it is boys or girls names you require. You can also use the site to search for different names using a wide variety of search terms by using the search page.
In addition I have also started to add Celtic baby names and these are clearly marked along with their meaning and pronunciation (where possible). Elsewhere on the site you will also find Celtic girl names along with their meaning
