Reply to: The amazing rarity of Aidan by Cleveland Kent Evans
I think that it's probably due to the fact that most Irish names were ignored by Irish people during the 1800s, Aidan included. In those days, Irish people generally used English names. Aidan was not considered English until fairly recently. Only in the 20th century was there a real revival of Irish names.
