Kieran Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Masculine; USAGE: Irish, English; PRONOUNCED: KEER-an (English), KEER-awn (English). Anglicized form of CIARAN. Origin Celtic, Gaelic: Dark-haired; an Anglicized form of Ciaran, a popular Irish name; Origin Irish: Dark. Kieran is a diminutive Kier. Kier originates in Irish language and is derived from the name Ciar, which means “small dark one”. As a masculine given name, it has always been much more popular in the United Kingdom than the United States. Kieran is the anglicized form of the Irish personal name Ciaran from the Gaelic ‘ciar’ meaning “black”. The diminutive suffix “-an” gives the name its ultimate meaning: “little black one”.
The name was probably given to children with dark features (brown hair and eyes) as opposed to the fairer babies of Erin (the female variation is Ciara). This name derives from the Gaelic given name “Ciaran”, meaning “little dark one” or “blacky“, from the Irish element ‘ciar’, meaning “black, dark”. The name is popularized by Irish saints dating back from the 5th century. Ciarán was one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland and is considered the first saint to have been born in Ireland, although the legend that he preceded Saint Patrick is questionable. Famous Kierans: Kieran Culkin – actor, Kieran Richardson – soccer player.
