Did you know that the once dominating baby name “Aiden” (and all the Braydens and Jaydens than followed) has Celtic roots? Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a list of some truly gorgeous and unique Celtic baby names!
In Ireland, babies are often named after relatives but Celtic baby names aren’t just limited to Irish inspired names. Currently, there are six Celtic “nations” or territories where Celtic language and traditions have been culturally preserved spanning the western-most shores of Ireland, up through Scotland and Wales, to the Isle of Man and Cornwall on the coast of England to as far east as the Bretagne (Brittany) region of France. The large swath of regions considered to be part of Celtic heritage make for a wide diversity of spellings and variations on baby names as a result, and all of them beautiful.
If you have a wee lass or laddie on the way, get inspired with 20 of my favorite Celtic baby names for boys and girls!

It’s absolutely gorgeous! Now that I have children, I am eager to take them to Paris one day and let them experience the culture and beauty of it for themselves. A city filled with beautiful museums, cathedrals, rivers, parks, and so much more, it’s only fitting that also has some of the most beautiful names for girls. Here are 23 French names for girls that I think you will love, and they will definitely have you planning a trip to Paris (assuming you’ve never been).

Before finding out I was pregnant with a little boy, I was never all that interested in boy’s names. My list of potential girl names was quite lengthy, but the boy names definitely made up a pretty short list. Since hunting for a boy’s name our own though, I’ve realized just how great little boy names can be and some of my favorites are those of the strong one-syllable persuasion (we even picked a name in this vein for our baby boy, which I announced yesterday if you care to take a peek at our pick). I like that they’re short and sweet and good names for a little guy to grow into. Here’s a list of some of my favorites…

Pregnancy isn’t always the most fun or glamorous. There are aches, pains, stretch marks and sleepless nights…but that doesn’t mean it’s not all worth it. It really is and there are even some fun and magical moments along the way. One of my favorite parts of pregnancy? Coming up with a baby name. I’m the type of person who had a running list of baby names long before I was ever pregnant and the moment I saw that little plus sign on the pregnancy test, I was off and running, coming up with even more. This time around I’m pregnant with a boy and I found it was a little bit more difficult coming up with a name, but after a lot of thought, we came up with one that we think will be perfect for him and that we really enjoy. I even had some fun little customized brother and sister shirts made to make the announcement! Click through to find out the name!
