261 Gaelic Baby Boy Names With Meanings

Gaelic baby names have become popular with the English-speaking population, and most of the names are derived from the names of flowers, trees, and plants from lands of the Gaels. The Gaelic boy names fall under the category of Goidelic languages which is one of the two Insular Celtic Languages (originated in Britain and Ireland). Gaelic names sound so good that pronouncing them will make it beautiful and sonorous.

Gaelic names were once restricted to Ireland, but around third and sixth centuries, Irish groups moved to Cornwall, Scotland, and Wales, therefore, spreading the names in the British Isles.

Traditional Gaelic names have a strong Irish association too. Find out our best list of Gaelic baby boy names along with meanings.
