Ireland Boy Baby Names

Below you will find a list of baby boy names from Ireland along with Gaelic Irish male names and a list of the most popular Irish names (Ireland) on this page. Irish names are often regarded as unusual, unique, and even exotic. However, the seemingly difficult to pronounce male Irish names often put parents to be, off these names. This shouldn't be the case and a suggested pronounciation is given for each of the names which appear unusual.

In terms of this page, it concentrates on Irish baby Boy names and their meanings. I have made NO distinction between Northern and Southern Irish names. Of course they are mainly first names but their are some Ireland family or Irish surnames also.

One slight oddity about Irish boys names is that sometimes they will combine two (perfectly good) names into one. John-paul, etc. This is often for religious (Irish Roman Catholic) reasons.

If you are on this page looking for the history of an Irish name from your heritage then as a general guideline (please note the emphasis is on the GENERAL) males in Ireland are named under the convention/tradition of:

  1. Oldest son named after the Fatherís father
  2. 2nd son named after the Motherís father
  3. 3rd son named after the Father
  4. 4th son named after the Fatherís oldest brother
