The Celts, once the most powerful force in central Europe, have preserved their character, culture, and folklore more strongly than any other of the Caucasian peoples. The names they go by are a clue to their rich and proud history. This book is a glossary of Celtic names, many of which are still popular—and growing in popularity—today. It provides the meaning behind each name and what they tell us about the Celts in general. This book serves the triple purpose of enabling people to discover the significance of their, and other people’s, Celtic names, helping parents to choose appropriate Celtic names for their children, and helping to further galvanize Celtic culture and tradition.
