The Baby Names of Ireland app from the CSO is a great way to check all the name trends since 1964. I had lots of fun looking through the names to see what was popular (or not!), and it’s fascinating to see how a name can be hugely popular for decades and then fall off the radar – or similarly, how a name can suddenly come to prominence out of the blue.

If you have a particular name in mind, you can enter the name and choose a year to see how many babies were registered with that name. See how the name has trended over the years, including how it ranked in the popularity stakes.
If you are looking for some inspiration, click the ‘Find Me A Name’ button for a random name selection.
When you find a name you love, you can also print a name certificate. I printed one for my daughter and she was so excited to see that she was one of 24 girls with her name in the year she was born.
