Gaelic Names

Gaelic generally refers to a subgroup of Celtic languages: Irish, Manx (from the Isle of Man) and Scottish or Scots Gaelic. It was once referred to as a “dying” language but it has experienced a solid resurgence and, along with it, Gaelic names have become incredibly popular all over the English speaking world. Gaelic names are deeply steeped in mythology and legend and most have that “old world” flair that many parents find attractive.
