Other Origin(s):Hebrew
Meaning:Admirable; Fortunate; Gift
Shay is a gender-neutral name of primarily Gaelic origin. A variation of Shea or Ó Séaghdha, meaning “fortunate”, Shay stands strong in its definition as “admirable”. Already infused with such esteemed values, its roots in the Hebrew Shai, meaning “gift,” only enhances the title more. Surely to bestow such an endearing name upon your little one is to remind them of the elevated status they will hold in your heart always.
