Irish Baby Names for Boys & Girls

That pissed off little boy to the left there… That is my oldest son Camden on his first St. Patrick’s Day. I think he was upset because with such a strong Irish heritage, he didn’t end up with an Irish name?  Either that or he was just sick of me dressing him up to take thousands on top of thousands of pictures. I am willing to say the second is more accurate.

Both my husband and I have large Irish backgrounds, my husband can actually trace his great grand parents back to Ireland, and has through his family tree.  My family?  Some day I may take on that project.

But when it comes to naming kids, I always looked through all the Irish baby names first to see if there was anything that popped out at me.  I figured I would share some of my favorites.
