Caoimhe Meaning and Origin

The name Caoimhe is a girl’s name meaning “gentle” and is of Irish origin. Caoimhe (pronounced “KEE-va” or “KWE-va”) derives from the Irish Gaelic word “caomh,” which means “gentle,” “beautiful,” or “kind.” The most common pronunciations are “KEE-va” or “KWE-va.” The “mh” combination in Irish Gaelic is often silent and acts as a nasal sound represented by a “v” or “w” sound.
