How To Name Your Baby Girl?

These are the top 100 popular Irish girl names along with its origin or meanings. However, if you are not yet sure on how to name your baby girl, here are some special tips to make a note of:

  • Look for names that are unique but not hard to spell or say. Remember that your baby will need to learn how to write her name when she grows up, and there are legal documents to sign too, that a misspelt name can pose many problems in the future.
  • Choose a name that is significant to you and your partner so that you will always be reminded that your baby is a treasure you both have to take care of.
  • Select a name that is timeless. There are names which tend to slip as time passes by and your baby grows old. Naming your baby Bunny when she’s still a baby maybe a cute choice at her current age, but will it still be the same when she applies for a professional job and be called Bunny by her bosses and co-workers?
