New Baby Names of Ireland app

New online application - Baby Names of Ireland
  • See how the popularity of your name has changed over time
  • Print a Name Certificate with your baby name stats
  • Perfect for baby name inspiration

The CSO today (11th December, 2017) releases a fun new online application for searching the baby names of Ireland.

Located in the Interactive Zone of our website, and with information from 1964 to 2016, you can follow the popularity of the names of your friends, family and children.

You can also download and print a Name Certificate. Enter your name and the year of your birth to see how many babies were registered with that name, and how your name ranked in that year.

Having trouble picking a baby name? Use our "Find me a name" function to randomly select a name and the information on its popularity.
