This name is really classic and popular -- it’s been one of the top 20 boys’ names on the Social Security Administration’s list since 2008. We love that it has different spellings so you can really make baby’s name stand out: Aaden, Aidan and Aayden.
If you like the name Brendan but want to try something else, why not go for Bradan?
You can spell this one with a “C” or a “K,” so take your pick!
We love that this boys’ name means “full of goodness.” It’s an appropriate name for a new addition to your family!
A form of William, the name Liam means “strong-willed warrior.”
It’s pronounced “nigh-uhl” by most people (although some say it as “neil”). It means “champion.” Need we say more?
We love this new take on Bridget -- it’s unique!
Whether your baby is a boy or a girl, this name still works. Plus, it reminds us of the awesome show Gilmore Girls.
This Irish baby name is as traditional as it gets. But beware! It means “she who chatters” -- you might end up with a talkative baby.
For those who are obsessed with all things literary, Flannery is a good pick. It reminds us of famous author Flannery O’Connor.
Like a lot of Irish names, this girls’ name has numerous spellings. And if you’re a fan of Keira Knightley, it’s perfect!
Pronounced “seer-sha,” this name is for adventurous parents looking for something really different.
Siobhan (pronounced “shiv-awn”) is also another classic moniker -- it’s the Irish form of Joan.
