Darragh is a gender-neutral name of Irish origin. It derives from the Old Irish word daire, meaning “oak,” and is also spelled Daire or Dara. The name appears in the ancient Irish myth Táin Bo Cuailgne, or The Cattle Raid of Cooley. In this epic tale, Daire Mac Fiachna refuses to sell his bull to Queen Medb, causing a war between the provinces of Ulster and Connacht. Thanks to its strong, steadfast meaning and links to Irish mythology, Darragh remains a popular name in Ireland today, along with its variants. If you have Irish roots, why not honor your heritage by choosing it for baby?
