If you feel your baby has an otherworldly aura and grace, you might consider the Gaelic moniker Shayleen. This mythical name is typically feminine and means “from the fairy place.” It is a variation of the Gaelic name Shayla which has the same meaning, relating to old Gaelic folklore. In Celtic mythology, fairies are known as a supernatural race called Aos sí, who live underground, resulting in fairy rings or forts above fields and grasslands. It is believed that if a person enters a fairy ring or fort, they will get stuck there forever or, worse, cursed. Other folklore tales say that fairy forts are also a sign of good luck, just like your sweet lucky charm Shayleen.
