Celtic Girl Names

Celtic heritage is a fusion of Iron Age mythology, Celtic gods, symbols, druids and festivals. The old tribal society brings in a naming tradition as ancient as the Celtic peoples themselves!

Celtic Background

The Celts (sometimes spelt as Kelts) were a group of tribal societies in Britain and Western Europe approximately from 500 BC to 400 AD. Sometimes called the inventors of rhyme, Celtic peoples are famous for their cultural heritage – Celtic melodic variations and folklore, Celtic mythology and a variety of gods, art and symbols such as Celtic cross, and skills of invincible warriors. Until today, six languages of the Celtic language family survived - Welsh, Irish, Breton, Scottish Gaelic, Cornish, and Manx – and they are commonly spoken in Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man. With such variety of language potential, Celtic ancestry gives parents all over the world the chance to choose a child’s name of profound etymology, linguistically established through time, with unusual pronunciation and mythical background.
