Correct Gaelic spelling: Ciarán. The 'fada' above the second a makes the vowel long thus resulting in an 'aw' sound. Hence correct pronunciation of the name becomes keer-on.

I have named my baby Ciaran, I just loved this spelling, that is one of the reasons I choose this name. I think it is such a strong sounding name.

My younger brother was almost named Ciaran. My parents ended up changing it to Braden, though, because the nurses kept calling him Karen, and they worried kids would call him "Ciar the Queer".

I like this name but I'd like it better if it had a shorter 'a' sound, like Ciara with an 'n' at the end.

While the proper pronunciation of this name is nice, Ciaran might be a difficult name to use in the US, as most people will want to pronounce it "Cee-AH-run" or "Cee-AIR-un".
