If you have any Irish blood in you at all, you’ll no doubt be well accustomed to havin’ the craic, hearing “Ah, sure look”, and slowly enabling your body to run on tea alone. But even if you’re not, everyone can agree Irish baby names are certainly another step in that direction. With names and traditions borne from an island people thousands of years old — approximately 33,000 years old actually — you can imagine there is a lot of information to sift through. But choosing an Irish baby name is not synonymous with becoming a historian, because we’ve got it all right here!

Irish baby boy names are steeped in history and tradition while still having that characteristically light lilt that makes the culture and the language well worth loving. More contemporary names like Teagan, Rory, and Payton can make anyone — rightfully — swoon. But if you’re looking for more classic names like Desmond, Cormac, and Conan, the Irish baby boy names options can go on for days. There’s always more to uncover and celebrate with the Irish culture, and starting baby on that journey from day one will enable them to be just as proud as you.
