Irish boy names are an exciting mix of well-known finds and those as green as the island itself. We all know Liam, the pint-sized cutie derived from William, who is ruling the charts with his spunk. He’s today’s Ryan, another Irish pick meaning “little king.” And before them, there was Shane, Shaun, and yes, Barry. See a trend here? Irish boy names rotate in popularity, so there are plenty of recognizable picks floating around for you to explore.

Irish boy names always dot the top of the charts, with Connor, Nolan, and Declan favorites in the 2000s, in addition to the picks above. They’ve replaced the stars of yesteryear, Kevin and Sean, leaving them up for grabs if you’re looking for something well-known but not super common. The next all-stars on our radar are Killian and Ronan, as their styling is similar to up-and-coming trends.

The -aiden wave rose to massive heights in the mid-2000s, and you guessed it, they are mostly Irish boy names. Aidan’s meaning of “little fire” spread like literal wildfire among parents and continues to burn bright today. He has several variants, including Aiden and Ayden, allowing you to switch up spellings if you choose. Other popular Irish -aiden names are Brayden and Caden. If you like the trend but aren’t keen on its popularity, you can try out similar-sounding names like Broden and Madden.

The blazing-hot surname trend is prevalent among Irish boy names, with Brady and Sullivan perfectly nailing the style. Riley and Lennon are also standouts in the genre, pairing the buttoned-up feel with a splash of rockstar factor. We’re totally crossing our fingers for Murphy and Rogan, as these less-common finds are more than ready for the spotlight. For lovers of super rare names, check out Dempsey and Devlin. Not only are they surname stunners, but they have obvious Irish charm you can’t help but love.

Irish boy names have a knack for packing a punch in a few short letters. These petite picks have a balance of boyish charm and manly polish, as seen in Finn, Cody, and Rory. Notice how each fits a little boy and an adult. For less popular names with the same styling, see Cian, Orin, and Nile for a unique twist.

Most notably, the meanings of Irish boy names are incredible. A cool meaning can really make a name sing, which is why we’re head over heels for so many Irish choices like Niall’s “champion.” For a resilient tyke, you have a host of options like Keane, meaning “fighter,” and Troy, meaning “foot soldier.” On the softer side, Melvin’s meaning of “counseling friend” wins us over wholeheartedly.

With so many awesome choices, we adore Irish boy names just as much as parents do. They maintain a timeless edge that wears well in childhood and adulthood alike, while some have the power to transport you instantly to Ireland upon hearing them. Whether they’re packing a plucky attitude or a sweet side, Irish boy names are solid picks for your little guy.
