Irish Boy Names

If you’ve been searching high and low for the perfect Irish name for a boy, congratulations — you’ve officially reached the end of the rainbow. These options are full of Gaelic charm.

Clancy

Have a little ginger on your hands? Clancy means “red-headed warrior” in Irish — and what’s a better fit than that?

Daly

If your kiddo is bound to be a social butterfly, the name Daly — which comes from “Dalaigh” and means “frequenter of gatherings” — is always a good choice.

 Riley

Meaning “courageous and valiant,” any fearless tot is worthy of the name Riley.

Aiden

Aiden — which means “born of fire” — is all too fitting for a child who has a serious zest for life.

Brady

The name Brady has a simple meaning: “broad island.” And hopefully that means taking care of him will be as easy as chillin’ in the tropics.

Patrick

You can’t go wrong with a classic Irish name like Patrick (especially when it means “nobly born.”)

Charlie

No one will mess with a cutie named Charlie: it means “a great warrior” and was one of the most popular names in Ireland during the Middle Ages.

Quinn

Expecting a little smarty pants? Quinn means “intelligent.” For centuries, those with the last name were the ones in charge of both war and peace in the country.

Brian

Meaning “high, noble, and strong,” parents originally started naming their kids Brian after the High King of Ireland, Brian Boru, who once defeated an army of Viking invaders.

Colin

Colin comes from the name “Coilin,” which means “little chieftan” — aka a very powerful member of a group.

Keane

Keane actually comes from the name “Cian,” which means “ancient and enduring.” In fact, remember King Brian Boru? Cian was his son-in-law.

Owen

Who would have guessed that the name Owen originally came from “Eoghan”? It means “born of the yew tree.”

Ronan

The name Ronan’s meaning is so cute it’s aww-worthy: “little seal.”

Connor

Connor will thank you every day that you didn’t go with “Conchobhar,” the long name it originates from. Either way, it means “lover of hounds,” so you better get this boy a dog.

Sean

Sean — meaning “gracious gift” — will be exactly that to your family.
