6 Celebrity Baby Girl Names Inspired By The Irish

Looking for the right name for your new arrival? Here is a list of baby girl names inspired by Ireland, which celebrities have used to name their children.

1. Ireland

What’s more Irish than naming your girl Ireland? Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin went all Irish when they named their daughter. The 22-year-old is now a successful model, who has appeared in campaigns for Guess and True Religion Jeans; and appeared on the cover of Elle and Marie Claire Mexico.

2. Fiona

American actress Jennie Garth chose this name for her daughter, who is now 11-years-old. Although this name originated in Scotland, it can be interpreted as Irish as it’s commonly found among Finolas and Fionnualas.

3. Maeve

A name inspired by an early Irish goddess and queen, and also the name actor Chris O’Donnell, known for his role as special agent G. Callen on the crime TV series NCIS: Los Angeles, chose for his daughter. 7-year-old Maeve and her mum, Caroline, also stared in the 150th episode as bystanders at a bombing, and totally stole the show.

4. Tallulah

This is an Anglicisation of Tuilelaith, but Patrick Dempsey (Dr. Derek Shephard in Grey’s Anatomy) and Demi Moore and Bruce Willis found this name perfect for their daughters.

5. Shea

Although the I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry actor Kevin James said he named his second daughter after the Shea Stadium in New York, it is actually has an Irish origin, meaning “majestic”. The 12-year-old Shea James had roles in Pixels, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, and Kevin Can Wait.

6. Róisín

Daughter of Irish singer Sinead O’Connor and columnist John Waters, Róisín Waters has sung numerous times together with her mum.
