Thanks to the beautiful Gaelic language, Ireland has always had a wealth of beautiful names to choose from. Names with Irish origins  just roll off the tongue in an elegant and captivating way. The appearance of Irish immigrants in the United States in the 19th century introduced the country to a lot of beautiful, traditional Irish names that are still used by non-Irish parents to this day. May parents are drawn to Irish names for their daughters, not only because of the large range of selections to choose from but also because of their similarity to English names, their unique pronunciations, and the strong, inspiring meanings behind them.
