We need some boy names. I have a girl name picked out already, but man are we struggling with boy names!! We like the idea of Irish, Scottish, welsh, celtic names. Any ideas??? Baby is due December

My favorite Irish boy's name is Aiden.


Aiden: A diminutive form of the name Aed meaning "fire" and would imply "born of fire." It became a popular name in honour of St. Aidan of Iona (c. 630 AD) who founded a famous monastery on the island of Lindisfarne which he used as a base to evangalize the North of England. In art Aidan is usually represented as a stag, a reference to the legend that he saved a deer that was being hunted by making it invisible.

I also like Cian (KEE-AN).

Cian: "ancient, enduring." In legend Cian Mac Mael Muad was the son-in-law of Brian Boru (read the legend) who led the armies from the province of Munster to victory over the invading Vikings at the Battle of Clontarf in 1014, a battle in which both he and Brian were killed.
Cian was the eighth most popular baby name for boys in Ireland in 2003.
