In Ireland there are many wonderful baby names to choose from. We have our own Irish versions of biblical names, the names of the Evangelists and of continental saints who have taken our fancy at various stages in our history. The Vikings left us some of their personal names, which either in their Irish or their Anglicized forms have proved to be as hardy a growth as those names given by the Anglo-Normans. Lots of them are included in this book. And, of course, we have the great repository of the old Irish tradition from which to choose our children's names. From Aaron to Ulna, Dairymaid O Murtha provides a gloss on more than four hundred Irish forenames in his inimitable style that mixes scholarship and wit with quirky snippets of interest. Thus, we learn that the name Art has nothing to do with Arthur; that Brendan is originally of Welsh origin and came to Ireland in a Latinized form; that Cathal is usually translated as Charles, although there is no historical connection between the two; and much more. As with all Diarmaid O Muirithe's work, this book is a model of scholarship lightly worn, informed by a sense of curiosity and fun. It's the perfect book from which to choose your child's name.

Including over four hundred beautiful, original and unusual Irish names, Diarmaid Ó Muirithe’s brilliant reference book provides the origin, historical and cultural background of practically every Irish name you have ever come across and many you have not! Peppered with witty snippets.

Gaelic names and their meaning. I have relied heavily on Diarmaid Ó Muirithe's great book A-Z of Irish Names for Children and their meanings in making my selection

Gaelic names and their meaning. Irish Gaelic names are not only still popular at home in Ireland, but are also particularly popular among the Irish diaspora abroad. Names are a great cultural identifier and, in an increasingly globalized world, when parents choose a name for their babies, they are making a small statement about how they see themselves and their family. I have relied heavily on Diarmaid Ó Muirithe's great book A-Z of Irish Names for Children and their meanings in making my selection.

Talk about A-Z of Irish Names for Children and Their Meanings

For parents looking for an authentic Irish name, this book offers a lot of information, mostly historical, on the names that are included; however, the quantity of names included is limited (it's a pretty slim book compared to other baby-name books out there). For parents who want an Anglicized Irish name that will be possible for people outside of Ireland to pronounce, this is probably not the book for you. Also, the names are not separated by gender, so that's either a plus or a minus depending on how you look at it. If you know the gender of your baby and don't want to spend time reading names for the other gender, this may annoy you. But if you interested in reading the history about all the names in the book, regardless of gender, you might like this format. It would have been nice to have the pronunciation of each name next to the name itself rather than in the back of the book.

Nicely written and organized.

This is a very nice little book and covers many many Irish and Celtic names; many you have heard of and many you have not. It's a great resource if you're interested in an Irish name for your baby and at a good price. To me, it's one of the better books on the subject. There is lots of information on the names listed. I got it for a friend who is expecting her first child and wanted an Irish name, she really liked the book too. I consider it a good investment.

So if your children will be born Irish I would recommend this book. I've only heard of 3-4 names from this book. These names are 100% Irish.

No pronunciation for the names. I'm Irish but unfortunately I can't read gaelic. Poor move on the authors part.......what a waste......
