Irish names

Using Irish last names is becoming more and more popular, specialy in the USA, where names like Kelly and Shannon have been popular for years, and names like Braden and Kennedy are zooming up the charts. Here is a list of surnames you might like to use for first names. Most Irish surnames, in their Gaelic form, start with Ó, Mac, or occasionally de (which indicates a name of Norman origin). Ó means 'grandson of', Mac means 'son of' and de means 'of'.
The name Erin has also been popular for decades in the USA, this is a derivation from Eire, the Gaelic name for Ireland (I mean the Republic of Ireland, different form the Ulster)
