Do you wish your child’s name to embody adventure and romance? Or do you want to name him after a word or symbol, which has a meaning that represents the quality you hope your child to acquire? Then we’ve got some lovely Celtic baby name options for you.

The Celtic culture is a fusion of Celtic symbols, gods, festivals, Druids, and Iron Age mythology and the same is reflected in their baby names. Drawn from mythology, history, place names, and legends, Celtic names display the charm of the Isles they’re derived from – Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and even Italy. A formal Celtic name consists of a given name and a surname, which is patronymic in etymology.

Take a look at the delightful Celtic baby names in MomJunction's list below.

Note – Traditional Celtic names can be a bit tricky to pronounce due to the Celtic vowels. So you need to know and understand the proper pronunciation of each of your shortlisted names.
