About This Quiz

Gaelic names have deep roots in history, often represented by legendary characters in Celtic stories. In many cases, the actions that the character took in the tales have a direct relationship to the meaning that the name holds today.

Perhaps you're a bit of a diva. If you expect things to be done a certain way and have incredibly high standards for those around you, Maebh might be your true Gaelic name. In the legends, she was a queen who would only accept a partner who matched her lofty skills and power. So, if other people think of you as being high-maintenance, this regal name might suit you well.

Maybe you consider yourself to be very lucky in love. If you've been blessed to have an amazing romantic relationship, Oisin might just be the name that we're looking for. Oisin is based on a legendary character who had to overcome some significant challenges as a child, but who later found the kind of love that kept both he and his lover young for centuries. If you also feel a strong connection to nature, then we're pretty convinced that we've got the right one.
