Other Origin(s):Welsh
Meaning:Tributary lord; The lord of the west; The dark lord
Jarlaith is a masculine name of Irish and Welsh origins. Derived from iarfhlaith or iorflaith, it can mean “tributary lord,” the lord of the west,” or “the dark lord.” The last one certainly gives He-who-shall-not-be-named energy! Spelled as Jarlath though, Saint Jarlath, also known as Iarlaithe mac Loga, comes to mind. Remembered as the founder of the monastic School of Tuam and of the Archdiocese of Tuam, of which he is the patron saint, he is a prominent figure in the Irish imagination. Whether or not your little one has a religious calling, this moniker can surely inspire them to take the lead and triumph over darkness!
