"Alicia" is a Latinized form of the German name that came into English as "Alice." Irish does have a form for that name: Ailís.

I'm not aware of an Irish form for Caleb.

I'm not aware of one that's in use.

Most Biblical names do have Irish forms, because the Bible has been translated into Irish. But often they've never made it into regular use. The Biblical form of "Joel" is Ióéil in Irish.

Actually, thinking on it, that's the genitive case. The name as a standalone is probably "Ióél"

How does An Bíobla Naofa render Caleb in Deotranaimí 1:19:36?
