As your little one blooms and grows, so will their love of their name, home language, and rich heritage. Why not make your first contribution to their journey with the beautiful boy's name, Mael? Despite its one-syllable status, it packs a serious punch in the meaning department, translating to "chief" or "prince" in French. It also has Irish roots thanks to a 13th-century High King of Ireland and the legendary name of Roycol's son. Once popular in Ireland and Wales, it's now primarily a French name.
