15 Super Rare Irish Boys Names Nobody is Using


Ireland is full of rich history and exciting legends, making it the perfect place to find unique baby names. And while Irish names are a pretty common thing in the United States, there are still many Irish boys’ names that have gone unnoticed by American parents. Whether you are getting in touch with your Irish roots or want a name that has a hint of magic, there is no better place to look than the Emerald Isle. With so many adorable Irish baby boy names to choose from, we’ve rounded up a list of some of our favorite rare and almost unheard of Irish names to help you decide.

 


Bradan
Salmon
Bradan is a name with a familiar ring that is less popular than Brandon and Brendon.


Brogan
Badger
A name so cute it’s aww-worthy, and bonus, it sounds like a combination of Brody and Logan.

Cashel
Fortress
For those looking for an Irish baby name that is just as unique as it is adventurous, Cashel is perfect. The Irish baby boy name seamlessly lends itself to the cute and on-trend nickname Cash.

Conlan
Hero
Conlan is a name with valiant undertones, and its similarity to other popular monikers like Collin and Cullen makes it feel familiar and unique at the same time.

Devlin
Descendant of the unlucky one
This Irish’s meaning is a bit of a downer, but this less popular take on Devon has a ring to it and can easily be turned into a girl’s name by spelling it Devlyn.

Driscol
Descendant of the messenger
Could Driscol be the new Declan? With its cool sound, we see this unique and underused name becoming a hit in the future.

Gannon
Son of the fair-haired one
The Gannon is darling but feels rugged, adventurous, and retro at the same time. 

Hagan
Little fire
A decidedly trendy and fitting name for a boy who will have a firey spark for life.

Keiron
Dark-haired one.
Have a little brunette on your hands? Keiron is a spelling variation of Kieran that means “dark-haired one” — and what’s a better fit than that?
The name isn’t widely used in the United States, but it is very popular in Ireland and England.

Mannix
Little monk
With its peaceful meaning and straightforward pronunciation, Mannix is an excellent choice for any baby boy, especially if you are looking for something edgy and unconventional.

Nevan
Saintly
It’s similar to Kevin — but, well, different, too. Any boy would be lucky to grow up with such a unique Irish boys’ name hailing from old folklore.

Quinlan
Shapely, strong, or descendant of Caoinlean
A balance of poetic and robust, any fearless boy is worthy of the name Quinlan.

Rourke
Illustrious and mighty
Rourke fits well with the modern trend toward surnames-as-first-names, for those who are fans of the style.

Tiernan
Little Lord
This powerful Irish boys’ name has never been super popular in the US. Fortunately, that makes the title even more unique when used here.

Ultan
A man from Ulster
With a strong tone and exotic vibe, Ultan is an uncommon choice just ripe for the picking.
