Do you love Irish names? Or maybe you’re even lucky enough to have one! Blogthings quiz takers have let me know over the years that they love Irish names, and our my old Irish name quiz (What’s Your Irish Name?) is still quite popular after all these years.
I personally love Irish names. Until recently, I didn’t know that I had any Irish heritage, and I didn’t grow up with any Irish names in my family tree. However, I did marry an Irish-American man, so I learned a lot about Irish names from him. And now that a recent genetic test reveals that I’m probably part Irish (got mixed up with the English side on the tree), Irish names are a little more special to me 😉
With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, I wanted to put a new spin on the Irish name ideas and write a quiz that paid tribute a bit more to the culture and meaning behind Irish names. My original quiz is great, but the answer you get is random… and it doesn’t tell you what your name means. I wanted to write a quiz that matched an Irish name to your personality – and told you what your Irish name means.
Check out my new Irish name quiz, What’s Your Irish First Name? I made all the names gender neutral, so don’t worry about the name you get being a guy’s or girl’s name. Each name should fit either gender quite nicely. This is a personality based quiz instead of a random quiz, and with eight questions, I hope that you find your name fits you.

- What do you get on What’s Your Irish First Name? Is it true for you?
- Do you have an Irish name that you particularly love? (Maybe it’s even your own name…)
- Are you part Irish at all? I’ve found that quite a few North Americans and people in northern Europe have some Irish heritage.
- What do you get on the old What’s Your Irish Name? quiz? Do you like that name better or less well than what you get on the new What’s Your Irish First Name?
