127 Irish Baby Names, Most of Which You Can Pronounce

And if you can't, you won't be the first American to call a kid Sorsee.

Thanks to waves of immigration, from earliest Colonial days into the mid-1800s — when more than a third of all immigrants came from Ireland — and beyond, millions of Americans now call themselves Irish. According to some estimates, those claiming Irish heritage exceeds the entire population of Ireland. One expression of that pride can be found in a whole range of traditional, cool, and beautiful Irish baby names for boys and girls. The small country, with only about half the population of New York City, has quite the reputation, both for cultural refinement and natural beauty — and the baby names to match. Whatever Irish baby name you choose, it’s sure to evoke the rolling green hills and rich history of your (or your neighbor’s) ancestors across the pond.
