Irish stats, get your Irish stats here!  Fiadh, which has entered the girls' top 100, is a new name for me.  I'd guess the 'dh' is silent?  (Thanks, Nameberry's Facebook feed!)

Baby Names Daily: Killian

"Was at gymnastics with my youngest last night and heard this on a little boy in there.  I am 50/50 with this I half like it and half don't because I don't really like how it has Kill in the name, you know what I mean?  Sounds like an Irish name though and I do love Irish names."
