Gealic Girl Baby Names

This page concentrates on Gaelic baby girl or female names and their meanings. Of course they are mainly first names or Christian names as they are known in some countries, but there are some Scotland family or Scottish surnames also, but all can be used as baby names. In addition I have also started to add Celtic baby names and these are clearly marked along with their meaning and pronunciation (where possible). Elsewhere on the site you will also find Celtic boy baby names along with their meaning

The female (girl) baby names listed here are from Gaelic Origin/Language/Culture. Scottish Gaelic or Gaelic is the traditional language of the Gaels. Gaelic is an Indo-European language spoken in Scotland (but declining in popularity and mainly in the remote Highlands) and Southern Ireland (EIRE). The Gaelic alphabet only has 18 letters with each traditionally being named after trees.

The Celtic baby names are slightly different in that they were popular in Breton, Cornish (Cornwall an area in Southern England),Irish (Ireland),Manx (Isle of Mann), Scottish, Welsh (Wales).
