Excellent link. Also try "Celtic mythology" and "Scottish".

Here is a webpage http://www.babynamesgarden.com/irish.aspx which has a good list of Irish names, with their origin, and, in some cases, the pronunciation.

Thanks for all of the info! I'll look into the ancestry one...my search ended going 4 generations back on my paternal grandmother's side.

Just found a really good Irish names site that has beautifully clear audio files of the names...

I got to be honest, I've been saying Ailill's name completely wrong.
Only pure Irish names on offer - Mine wasn't there.

To be honest, the best and one of the most reputable sources for Irish names - mainly for surnames but it also has forenames too - is the Rev. Patrick Woulfe's, Sloinnte Gaedheal is Gall (Irish names & surnames) Dublin 1923 (it has been reprinted in the 1960s/70s).

MacLysaght's work is ok as well, but I can say that he has a number of mistakes and omissions, including of families relating to his beloved Co Clare!
