What is the meaning of “Niamh Moriarty”?
“Niamh” is a Gaelic name. It is pronounced “Neeav” or “Niev”. In Irish mythology, Niamh is the queen of Tír na nÓg, the land of eternal youth. The daughter of the sea god, Manannan Mac Lir, she was known as “Niamh of the Golden Hair,” and rode about on a white horse. She fell in love with a bard named Oisin and brought him to live in Tír na nÓg. This land of the ever young is one of the most well-known and mystic otherworld places in Celtic mythology.
“Moriarty” is the anglicized form of the Gaelic surname “Muircheartaigh” and means “Navigator”.
