Say you want to give your baby and Irish name-either because you of Irish descent or because you simply like the sound of Sinead or Finnega. But where do you find an Irish name? Sprinkled throughout most naming dictionaries are names that seem to be Irish, but it's difficult to tell: A name that one book calls Irish might be called Scottish in another, or simply Celtic.
