Modern Irish name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Irish names and surnames.

Ireland is an island west of Great Britain and is politically separated into the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Republic of Ireland covers the majority of the island and has a population of almost 5 million people whereas Northern Ireland has just under 2 million people on about a sixth of the island.
To say the two Irelands have their differences would be an understatement, but their official split happened roughly 100 years ago. This is obviously not that long over the span of human history, hence why both Irelands share a large historical heritage, including their language and thus names.

Today, many Irish names have been simplified and in many cases are the same as English counterparts. English and Irish are the official languages of both Irelands, but Irish is secondary to English and only spoken by a relative minority. This generator focuses on those modern names. If you're after older, more traditional names, check out this name generator.
