As Saint Patrick’s Day approaches, Irish baby names are often on the minds of parents-to-be. Some Irish names are becoming more popular, but don’t fret — there are plenty of uncommon ones to choose from.
No matter what time of year it is, Irish baby names are a popular choice for moms and dads. However, with March 17 quickly approaching, more parents may be turning to Irish names to fill out the last few spots on their baby name list.
You may find that some Irish baby names are becoming pretty popular. Aiden, for example, was number 10 on the 2012 most popular baby name list after catapulting itself to the top 20 just four years prior. And what are Aiden’s linguistic roots?

So, if you’re looking for a name with Irish origins that is a little bit off the beaten path, look no further. Many of these are the anglicized version of their harder-to-pronounce Irish versions or they otherwise stem from Irish roots. We think these names are awesome, though, and hope you do too.
