More will be added when I have time to process some material.
As counted from birth registrations in Ireland from 1866 (start) to 1869 and 1870 to 1879.
The names shown (male) and (female) refer to entries where, in all probability, the infant died at birth. It is significant that they are numerous enough to get in the top-ten and that the position is similar in either gender. Although some may be early registrations where an name has simply just not been chosen, if it is an indicator of mortality boys are a little more likely to die at birth. A traditional naming system was in existence which, although not rigidly mandatory, would have meant that a child could be named by the system with relative ease.
