It's a bizarre thing in the history of leprechauns that few of them are ever given proper names. The leprechaun from the horror movie franchise is just called "the leprechaun." The one that sells you marshmallowy good Lucky Charms cereal shares the name "Lucky" with the leprechaun mascot of the Boston Celtics. Aside from Brian Conners from the movie "Darbie O'Gill and the Little People," few others ever pop up with any name though, and that seems really unfair. Everyone deserves a name whether they're a regular person or one of the little people from the world of faerie. If nothing else, it gives you a sense of individuality and ensures people can call you something when they want your attention besides "hey you with the pot of gold!"
If you feel like you may have some roots in Ireland or maybe just some origins in the world beyond this one where the wee folk goes about their business, then you ought to do something to fit in properly. You can't just rely on a little green suit and some shoes with big gold buckles on them. Want to discover your leprechaun name? Take the quiz and see!
