This list of Irish-language given names shows Irish language (Gaeilge) given names and their Anglicized forms, Latinized forms, or English-language equivalents.

Some English-language names are derived from the Irish language—for example, Kathleen from Caitlín. Conversely, some Irish-language names are derived from the English-language—for example, Éamon from Edmund. Many Irish-language names have English-language equivalents, because both names may be derived from a common name of another language. For example, the Irish-language Máire and English-language Mary are both derived from the French language. Sometimes Irish-language names have equivalents in other languages, which are not etymologically related. For example Áine (a traditional Irish-language name meaning "brightness" or "radiance") is used as a form of Anne (which is ultimately from the Hebrew-language, meaning "he [God] has favoured me [i.e.] with a child]"). Many Irish-language given names are traditional and have no real equivalents in the English language (other than their Anglicized, or Latinized spelling variations). During the Irish revival some Irish-language names, which had fallen out of use, were revived. Certain names are recent creations—such as Saoirse.

In Irish language naming traditions, when a father and a son have the same name Mór and Óg are used to differentiate, meaning "the Elder" and "the Younger" respectively.
