Fragrance O'Boyle writes: I ve travelled all over the world in my charity work and found that having a universal name like Fragrance can be a positive thing in many ways. People just like the word because mostly they understand what it means.More often than not the first thing they will say when I introduce myself is 'What a lovely name!
Being Irish I always yearned for one of the ancient names and this ignited my passion over the years and in my studies I ve come to learn that there is a story behind every Irish name.
Over the centuries thousands of Ireland s most fantastic tales have been passed down through the generations in the form of the familiar names we pass on to our children. Down through the ages Ireland's ancient Celtic culture and language have brought us many of the world's most beautiful, poetic and historic names. Our history is filled with famous heroes and rebels, princesses and pirates and even saints and sinners. They all share their names with the plain people of Ireland and their descendants today who have settled in communities all over the world.
The one other thing my journey has taught me is that nobody loves a good old story more than the Irish! So here is my journey through these names and my collection of these stories.
Irishbabynames is your ultimate guide on a journey back to the source and the meaning of every single Irish name ever used. It is packed with fun, facts, people and legends from Ireland's misty Celtic past.
Here you ll meet travellers from ancient Greece and fierce Viking raiders. You ll discover names recalling the heroics of the great hero Cuchullin or the holiness of saintly Columba and of course Patrick.
You ll even scratch your head in wonder at names which translated the poetry of Ireland's native Gaelic langauge into Latin, Norse and even English!
I hope you enjoy flicking through the pages and dabbling in my collected name definitions. I d like to think they will help you long the way to understanding your own name and maybe give you some extra food for thought if you are choosing a name for a precious new arrival!
Remember, a name given in love will never be forgotten!
