Meaning:Broken-hearted or sorrowful
Deirdra is a girl's name of Irish origin. While it means "broken-hearted" or "sorrowful," there's no need to worry. In Celtic mythology, Deirdre was the daughter of Fedlimid mac Daill, an Irish bard and king. Before her birth, a druid prophesied that she would become the most beautiful girl in Ireland. Her penchant for breaking hearts and wreaking havoc later earned her the famous name "Deirdre of the Sorrows." With all this in mind, a name like Deirdra is a great way to honor your Irish roots and baby's restless spirit.
