Cornish is a Celtic language and considered a minority language in the United Kingdom. Cornish is spoken primarily in Cornwall, a region in South West England. Cornish previously experienced a severe decline towards the end of the 19th century but has enjoyed a revival in recent years, with many school children being brought up to be bilingual native speakers. Cornish is an elegant sounding language and Cornish names are uniquely complex. Many Cornish girls names resemble names from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy, as the author is said to have been inspired by the Cornish language while writing his famous stories. Baby Name Network is a wonderful resource for Cornish baby names and meanings, as well as other Celtic language groups.
