Popular Irish Girls Names 

In July of last year, 2012, the most popular Irish girls names were announced, and you may be surprised to learn that not a single girls name with Irish connections were in the Top 10. Is this a sign that Ireland is losing its sense of history and identity, or is it just a growing trend for certian universal popular names?

I would suspect it is the latter as the Irish are certainly known for their strong roots and a passion for not losing their heritage. The history of Ireland is ingrained in most Irish people and rightly so.

But there are still plenty of popular Irish girls names that have been derived from Ireland in the overall top 100, so it is not as if Irish people have stopped using Irish names altogether.

Here were the Top 10 most popular Irish girls names in Ireland:

Emily
Sophie
Emma
Grace
Lily
Sarah
Lucy
Ava
Chloe
Katie

As you can see most of these names are pretty much the same names which are just as popular in the UK too, and I think the world is becoming a smaller place with the internet and social media passing on trends and information at lightning speed.

Below are the Irish girls names that were in the Top 100:

Niamh
Roisin
Clodagh
Ciara
Caoimhe
Erin
Aoife
Sadhbh
Saoirse
Aine
Orla
Tara
Eimear
Meabh
Sinead
Muireann
Eabha
Aoibhinn
Aine

Some wonderful traditional Irish girls names in that list that are still very popular in Ireland.
