With its modern sound, Caleigh is an excellent option for honoring your Gaelic heritage through baby. It means "slim and fair," which are both common descriptors for characters you'll find across Irish mythology, like the otherworldly beings of the Tuatha Dé Danann. This race of gods and goddesses was said to rule the country and possessed unique gifts for the arts, architecture, and magic. They later became the sídhe, or fairies, of Irish legend once their rule came to an end. Caleigh can be inspired by these deities to forge her own path and embrace leadership.
