Although there are several Irish names for boys that are in contention on my list I had troubles thinking of similar ideas for girls. One that popped in my head though (and has been growing on me) is Kathleen. The name's mid-century vibe may be a turn-off to some, but from someone who likes names such as Nancy and Susan I like Kathleen's retro feel coupled with its Irish roots. I also think that after all the butcherings of Caitlin and variants (which ironically was the original form) Kathleen now sounds fresher and more respectable/mature. WDYT?
