Adrian was originally Ancient Latin for dark but it didn't mean it as a shade or absence of light. It meant it as attractive physical features. This association comes from the ancient Roman emperor Hadrian who was regarded as a good ruler and humanist. He rebuilt the Pantheon and constructed Hadrian's Wall and The Temple of Venus & Rome.
This meaning is why many popes chose this name.
