Origin:Gaelic
Popularity:969
Meaning:Ireland
An Irish name doesn’t get more Irish than Erin, which means…Ireland! A top 100 contender on the popularity charts from the early 1970s until 2005, Erin may have lost some of her ratings steam to other up-and-coming Gaelic girls’ baby names, such as Maeve and Aoife, but she has lost none of her charm. She’ll always evoke friendliness, honesty and pride in her heritage. As the saying goes, Erin go bragh (“Ireland forever”).
