speaker of Gaelic
Unisex with a twist: As a boy’s name, Gael is pronounced ga-EL, but for girls, it’s said as the one-syllable gale. It’s got lots of fans and not just in Gaelic-centric Scotland and Ireland—parents in Wales, Spain and Brittany, France, like it a lot too. But it didn’t become a known name in the US until 2002. Since then, the success of film and TV actor Gael Garcia Bernal has kept the name prominent and on the radar of parents, many of whom think it’s ideal for their beloved babies. Alternate spellings include Gale (like “The Hunger Games” character) and Gail.
