Hozier is trying to inspire everyone to name their baby girls Aisling.
This comes after a fan came up to him & asked him to sign an album "to Aisling" in the hopes they'd one day have a daughter named Aisling to gift it to.
There was a lovely (American) person at the signing today who asked me to sign an album for 'Aisling', in the hopes they one day might have a daughter they can give that name to😭. I thought people in Ireland might like to hear that. (Aisling means 'dream' in Irish)

Aisling is already one of Ireland's most popular baby names. With the help of Hozier it might just go global!
Fans responded to this heartwarming tweet & it seems it hit the states already!
"Dad, why does this Hozier album have 'To Aisling' written on it?"
"Well, Gary, you were a bit of a disappointment."

I love this! 💗(Just, please, folks, if you're going with Irish, keep it Irish...don't mangle it with strange visually-read American pronounciations! 😲)

That is the absolute sweetest thing. How beautiful a thought it is, to hope to weave your beautiful music into the tapestry of Aisling’s upbringing.
