This Irish girls name was the most used Irish name in the United States last year
Is your child's name popular in the USA?
Apparently, Irish baby names are only growing in popularity States side which is no surprise seeing as many Americans have some sort of Irish ancestry.
Recently a survey was taken which revealed the top ten Irish baby names reigning supreme in the United States.
According to a report from My Domaine published by the Irish Post, these are the ten Irish names that American parents just couldn't get enough of over the last year and a half.
8. Reilly (Irish surnames are a popular choice for first names in the States)
7. Saoirse (no doubt thanks to actress Saoirse Ronan)
That's right, Aoife was the most used Irish name used in the United States over the last year. I can't say I'm surprised as it is a lovely name but you just know they're going to be in for a lot of 'how do you spell that?'
Surprisingly names such as Sean and Niamh, which often top baby name polls here in Ireland didn't make the cut this time around.
Did your name or your child's name make it onto the top ten? What other Irish baby names would you recommend to American parents?
