Modern name, probably a short form of RHIANNON or an elaboration of RHIAN.

Derived from Old Celtic Rigantona meaning "great queen". In Welsh mythology Rhiannon was the goddess of fertility and the moon. This name is also borne by a princess in Welsh legends, the wife of Pwyll.

RHIAN f Welsh
Derived from Welsh rhiain meaning "maiden".
