Meaning:New Ireland
Athol is a fascinating little moniker hailing from Old Irish. It combines ath, meaning "new" with the ancient name Fótla, one of the tutelary goddesses of Ireland. Athol therefore means "new Ireland." This masculine pick is shared with the noble Duke of Atholl in Scotland, who is the only person in the UK allowed to maintain their own private army. The ceremonial regiment bears the name of the Atholl Highlanders. Your little one will surely follow suit and take their livelihood into their own hands!
