The results are in: The Irish baby names that will be most popular in 2022

Can you guess what they are?

It's always surprising what baby names are trending in Ireland every year and 2022 is no exception.


Sometimes it's traditional Irish names like Sean and Aoife or non Irish traditional names like Jack and Sophie.

Other times it's modern and unusual names like Maddox, Naveah and Willow.

Either way what's popular is constantly changing so it's always interesting to see which names are popular from year to year. And even though it's only May we already know what the big baby names of 2022 in Ireland are.


According to online baby name website Nameberry, these are the ten most popular baby names in Ireland this year.

Some we guessed would be popular this year but there's a couple of wild cards in there too:

Boy Names

1. Tadhg
2. Cormac

While it's not that surprising that a lot of traditional Irish baby names like Caoimhe and Cormac made the cut there were a few in particular that stood out.


Over the last couple of years there has been more and more classical literary inspired and Victorian era names as they become popular again.

It will be really interesting to see if by the end of the year there are even more classical names becoming popular in Ireland.
