Hi. I have looked under several websites for translation of English first names to the Irish. I've had no luck in finding the equivalent of "Justin". I always that it was a popular Irish name. Any help in the translation would greatly appreciated! go raibh maith agat, Bill

Bill

Justin, Justine

These names are from the Latin justus, meaning "just." They are not translatable into Irish.

'Saorbhreathach' once a popular forename amongst the Mac Carthaidh was anglicised as 'Justin'.

Bill, try http://namenerds.com/irish/irishintro.html

They have extensive lists of Irish names, ancient and modern, as well as Irish cognates for English, German, Latin, etc., names, as well as a name forum if the lists don't answer your question.

Le meas,

Ursula
