This Irish name is beyond beautiful.

Irish baby names have proven popular at home and all around the world.

The stunning monikers often feature on baby name lists and it comes as no surprise.

Names like Saoirse, Finn, Niamh, Éabha, and Tadhg never fail to impress but there’s one Irish baby name standing out from the crowd.

If you’re expecting a baby girl this year then you may want to consider adding this to your list of possible names.

According to The Irish Star, the name Fiadh has become increasingly popular in the last few years.

The adorable and gentle meaning behind the beautiful moniker is one of the main reasons for its popularity.

The meaning behind the name ‘Fiadh’ is ‘deer’ and ‘wildness’.

This beautiful Irish name also means ‘respect’ making it the perfect option for your little girl.

Fiadh featured in the top 10 baby girl names for Irish parents last year and could be crowned the most popular name for girls in 2024.

In 2023, it was the second most popular name for baby girls. It was actually crowned the most popular name of Irish origin but missed out on the number one spot in the top 10 by Grace.

Last year, 300 baby girls were given the name Fiadh.
