I love this name but I have seen so many variants in different languages that I am starting to get suspicious about its true origins. I've seen Irish, Hawaiian, French, German....are these valid or not? What is the true origin and original spelling, or actual variants? Meanings are ranging from "bright" to "dear child" to (from behindthename "from the name Alan", which means little rock/handsome.

Grrr.
