This is a fantastic post. I love so many Irish names, generally names with Celtic origins/associations, plus I’m very into the Celtic culture and like to learn more about Catholic saints, so I really think it is a great post. If you have some Irish roots or are expecting your baby this month, definitely have a look at this post. 🙂
I’ve heard it said that we’ve all got a little Irish in us. It’s true, that many American’s have some Irish blood running through us. The month of March is home to Saint Patrick’s Day, and while Patrick makes a fine name and one we will delve into, let’s look at a total of five Irish Saint’s for lucky Name-spiration!
Saint Aidan of Lindisfarne was a monk who founded a monastic chapel in Lindisfarne. St. Aiden traveled endlessly through the countryside spreading the gospel. Aidan boomed in popularity in the early 2000’s, peaking at Number 39 in 2003. Today Aidan is still well loved and used at Number 190. Alternative spelling Aiden is more popular at Number 16, while Ayden is Number 92, and Adan comes in at Number 443. Aidan is an Irish name meaning little and fiery which perfectly fits the little Aidan’s I’ve encountered.
