Irish is the modern Goidelic language spoken in Ireland. Irish names are often Celtic in origin, such as Aidan, or else they could be Irish forms of other names, such as Sean being a form of John. In many cases, the name could be spelled in Irish or as an Anglicized form, such as Fearghas versus Fergus.
