My husband and I are opening a new daycare for children. I would like to find a name from the Irish language that reflect the joy and and blessing that children are to us all. Can anyone help?

I suggest the name Mol-an-Óige

pronounced mull-ohn-owe-geh- said quickly

'Mol an Óige'
From the old Irish proverb-

'Mol an Óige agus tiocfaidh sí'

'Praise the children and they will respond'
(they will work with you)

I know this may seem a bit "cliché" but you may consider

Tir na nÓg (Land of the Young or Land of Youth)

It's taken from Irish mythology. It was a mystical land where people never grow old. There's a pretty neat story about two characters, Diarmud and Grainne, that's worth investigating.

Having said that, I must say I prefer Alec's suggestion.
