Steeped in Irish charm and made famous by One Direction star Niall Horan, this sweet moniker is a wonderful choice for your little champ. Of Irish origin, it is derived from Neil or Niall. Nial is the anglicization of the Gaelic name Néil which means “champion,” helping to set baby up with a winner mentality from the get-go. It also comes from the Old Irish word niadh and is believed to be around for centuries, making it a fabulous way to honor your little one’s Celtic heritage. The name Niall was also borne by many historical kings in Ireland, including Niall Glúndub, an Irish High King of the 10th century.
