Gaelic Background

The Gaelic peoples, sometimes called the Gaels or Goidels, were an ethno-linguistic group residing mainly in Ireland, Scottish Highlands and the Isle of Man. Today, Ireland and Scotland would be considered major Gaelic nations. The old Gaelic Kingdom emerged in Western Scotland as far back as the 6th century and the Gaelic nations were famous for their phenomenal skills as warriors. Gaelic, or Goidelic languages are originally one of the two branches of Celtic language family and until today three languages are still being used – Irish, Scottish Gaelic and Manx. With such variety of language potential, Gaelic 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.
