20 Unisex Irish Baby Names That Are Absolutely Magical
Irish baby names are some of the most unique and beautiful in the world.
As the child of a Francophile I always resented my boring easily spelled name and was delighted when in national school the teacher gave everyone (who didn't already have one) their "Irish" name during Irish. Though I noticed that anyone with an 'S' name was called Saidhbh and anyone with an 'M' name, Máire; everyone was pretty much Saidhbh or Máire (it wasn't an exact science). Similarly no matter how anglo or foreign-sounding your surname was they just stuck and 'Ó' or a 'Ní' in front of it...
The popularity of unisex baby names is on the up and the Irish names really lend themselves to this trend. Lots of the names on the list are genuinely unisex and some are traditionally used for boys or girls but definitely could work for either.
