Celtic, or “Keltic,” languages are descended from the greater Indo-European language family, and most commonly spoken on the north-western edge of Europe; specifically Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man. There are officially six living Celtic languages: Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. Some characteristics of Celtic names include: unusual spelling combinations, unfamiliar phonetic sounds, long syllables and soft vowels. Celtic baby names are often melodic and lilting when pronounced correctly. When searching for a Celtic baby name consider spelling and pronunciation especially as Celtic vowel and consonant combinations can be a bit tricky. Baby Names Network contains a comprehensive list of Celtic baby names and their meanings.
