Aidan

Aedan, Aodhan

A diminutive form of the name Aed meaning "fire" and would imply "born of fire." It became a popular name in honour of St. Aidan of Iona (c. 630 AD) who founded a famous monastery on the island of Lindisfarne which he used as a base to evangalize the North of England. In art Aidan is usually represented as a stag, a reference to the legend that he saved a deer that was being hunted by making it invisible.

Aengus, Aonghus, Oengus "eng + iss"

Aengus, Aonghus, Oengus

From aon "excellent" and gus "strength, vigor." Aengus was the god of love and of youth. His words were as sweet as honey, attracting bees and birds. He fell deeply in love with a beautiful girl he saw in a dream and passed through many trials, including turning himself into a swan, to win her love.

Ailill "all + yill"

From the Irish ailleacht "beauty." Ailill was the young husband of Queen Maebh, chosen by her because he was "a man without meaness, fear or jealosy, a match for my own greatness." His argument with Maebh over who had the greater herd of cattle led to The Cattle Raid of Cooley (read the legend), one of the greatest epic tales in Irish mythology.

Alroy

From rua "red" and would make an appropriate name for a red-headed child.

Ardan "are + dawn"

From ardanach meaning "high aspiration." Ardan was one of the sons of Usna who helped Deirdre escape to Scotland so that she would not be forced to marry King Conchobhar MacNessa.

Art Arthur
