Pronounced Key-in.

No matter how it is pronounced, I really really like this name. It looks so strong and the pronunciation, either way, is really nice. A beautiful masculine name.

This name certainly has an essence about it that seems to intrigue me. I love its meaning. Not very many names that sound pleasant mean "ancient". I can imagine a young man named Cian as having a philosophical point of view of the world and a strong spirit about him. I prefer to pronounce the name as Kee-an but keen is okay too. Also, perhaps another way to spell this name would be Keane.

Cian is the name of a main character in Nora Roberts' Circle Trilogy.

Cian, although meaning ancient, also means distant and has survived into middle and modern Irish as such e.g. 'Cian-smacht' is the modern Irish word for remote control. In the past his name was given to a child that was particularly 'over-due' in pregnancy i.e. late/distant etc.

The correct pronunciation of this Irish name (in phonetic English) is 'kee-an' not 'keen', 'cain' or 'kay-ne' or anything else.

My friend pronounces his name like this, but spells it Keon. He gets called key-ON a lot.

Such a nice intelligent name.

This is a beautiful name. I named my son Kian with the K, but I also LOVE it the original way spelled with the C too. Good strong masculine name.
