    Funny story, I love Irish names for boys, but not girls… (It’s true! The two that I thought I could stomach for girls–Isla and Fiona–I’ve recently learned are Scottish, not Irish!) I know. I’m very odd. Is anyone else like that? You like names of a certain nationality for one gender, but not the other? I used to be the same way about French girls’ names (Aurelie, Odette, Madeleine, Charlotte, Isabelle, Claire, Camille, Arianne, etc., etc., etc.) but none for boys (although I’ve recently discovered some loves–Baptiste, Auguste, Gaspard/Caspar, even Leo, which in French, has an accent over the “E” and is pronounced like LAY-oh).

    Anyway, without further ado:

    GIRLS:

    Aislinn (only kind of, though. I’m not as in love as I once was, and I’d never use it, since I’m Ashley…)

    BOYS:

    Rory
    Declan
    Aidan
    Ciaran
    Killian/Cillian
    Patrick
    Colin
    Ronan
    Eamon
    Owen
    Liam
    Lachlan
    Seamus (OMGoodness, SEAMUS!!!!)
    Tiernan
    Finley
    Finnian

    What’s not to like about Irish boys’ names? They’re so ruggedly handsome and outdoorsy, and the accent and the muscles and the charm… bahaha. I just find Irish girls’ names to be so ugly, though. There are so few that I like! I can semi-tolerate Aoife, but I like Eva so much more…

    I like Irish boys’ names better, too. Rory, Colin, Brennan, Owen and Kieran are probably my faves.
