I'm looking for Irish baby names for a boy or girl. I'm Catholic and I love traditional names but not too bizarre

I just realized I forgot boys, here are some boy suggestions:

Aeden (Means 'Little Fire')

Ailbe (Means 'white', Saint Ailbe)

Alory (Means 'Red')

Brian or Byrant (Brian is originally said 'Bree-ahn', dates back centuries)

Coinneach (means 'Pleasent person', comes from Canice, whom was a Saint)

Cahal/Cathal (means 'Mighty Battle' or 'Great Warrior', St. Cathal or St. Cathaldus)

Cearul (Means 'Fierce in Battle')

Cian or Kian (Means 'Ancient' or 'Enduring')

Ciaran (Kieran is another form, means 'Dark' or 'Little Dark One', multiple saints had the name Ciaran)

Cillian (Cille is a word that means 'One associated with the church', Saint Cillian was a name-bearer)

Daeglan/Declan (A well known St, Declan was a well known man, means 'Man of prayer')

Desmond (means 'One of Desmond')

Fergus ('Man of Strength)

Jarlath (St. Jarlath, means 'gentle child' or 'well born')

 

Hope this helps :)
