Gael is a gender-neutral name coming from all walks of life. Gael, also spelled Gale and Gayle, derives from the Gaelic word Gaidheal which was used for strangers or foreigners. It translates to “Irishman” or "member of the Gaelic race," giving this old term a more distinct and ancestral characteristic. This baby name is also as blissful as can be with its Hebrew origin, meaning “father rejoices.” Whether you’re bringing baby back to their roots or letting them know how much joy they have already brought to the family, Gael will fit beautifully.
