Irish Dog Names buttonWant some traditional Irish dog names for your new friend? If you’re looking for a name for your Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, Irish Setter or Kerry Blue Terrier, we have some authentic names chosen that we think you will love!

Listed separately, are both male and female lists of Irish names that work for both pets or children, since they are real, Celtic names. If the name has a difficult pronunciation, we have included a phonetic pronunciation in parentheses for you, but if it is a common name, we figure you won’t need our help, so have left it off in those cases.
