This country of leprechauns, shamrocks, and green beer follows an old Gaelic tradition when it comes to naming the babies. In Ireland, the first born son has to be named after the father’s father, the second born has to be named after the mother’s father, the third born after the father, and the fourth born after the father’s oldest brother. In the case of daughters, the first born is named after the mother’s mother, the second born after the father’s mother, the third born after the mother, and the fourth born after the mother’s oldest sister.
