I was suppose to have a Name in the Spotlight post ready for today. Trouble is, Xmas is nearly here and I've been volunteering in my spare time, so I'm changing things slightly until I get back on schedule. Anyways, I usually talk a lot about aristocrats, but these tend to be mainly from England or Scotland, and rarely do I mention anything about the Irish nobility. So, I've decided to have a quick look at what Ireland has to offer. Below are the names of ten Irish aristocrats.

Girls

Gyles

Egidia

Elilis

Albertha

Aramintha

Boys

Donal 

Dermod

Cormac

Finghin

Donogh

These names were not taken from any particular historical source. I somehow got lost on Wikipedia and came across Donal MacCarthy Reagh, 9th Prince of Carbery, and his sons, which are listed below his name.
