Old Irish oglach («young», «warrior», «servant») is a cognate of the Turkic oghlak («young», «boy»), a variant of the common Turkic oghlan.

The Celtic oglach is interpreted as the combination of og («young») and the suffix lach, forming abstract nouns.

The Turkic oghlak is known to be a derivative of the same ogho, ogh («young») and the noun forming suffix –lak in Turkic languages.

The element ogho, as an independent noun, has survived in the Yakut language in the words «young», «child». That language is known to be one of the old Turkic languages keeping old elements. 

Oghlak is a cognate of modern Turkic oghlan («boy»). Its phonetical variants uhlan, ulan («warrior», «cavalier») are used in modern European languages.
