English, Irish


An earthy little girls' name meaning 'Ireland'. According to Irish folklore, the name comes from the goddess Ériu and was originally given to Ireland by the ancient Irish folk. It's a poetic name that was only quite recently taken as a little girls' name, probably because no saints, queens, or literary figures had ever been called Erin, to set the trend!
