Curiosities about Irish names

According to Irish tradition, the eldest son is named after his paternal grandfather, the second son the name of his maternal grandfather and the third the same as his father and the fourth, the name of the father’s elder brother.

In the case of girls, the eldest daughter is named after the maternal grandmother, the second after her paternal grandmother, the third has the same name as her mother, and the fourth is named after the mother’s older sister.

Although this custom is no longer strictly followed, it is common for the first children to bear the name of a relative.

And another curiosity is that Saint Patrick was not actually an Irishman named Patrick (Patrick). The patron saint of Ireland was born Maewyn Succat and was actually British.
