Órlaith (older spelling: Órfhlaith, newer spelling: Órla) is an Irish language female given name. Orlagh is a hybrid spelling based on a merger with another suffix. The meaning of the name derives from Ór, meaning "Golden" and Flaith, meaning "prince" although as names with "flaith" suffixes are almost always exclusively feminine, this is usually interpreted as meaning "princess". The retention of the 'fh' within the spelling maintains the ability to easily derive the true meaning of the name, but as this is silent, it is common to see this redacted. All spellings of the name are however pronounced the same, as "OR-la".
