Manx Names


Manx is the old Celtic language of the Isle of Man, an island of 221 square miles located in the Irish Sea. This wind-swept island has a population of approximately 64,000 people. Technically, the Isle of Man is not part of the United Kingdom, but is a crown possession administered by the British Home Office.

The distinctive Manx language's closest relation is Scots Gaelic. This language is now considered to be close to extinction.
