My name is Cillian. I used to be ashamed of my name due to mockery and popularity. Now I am 17, I have overcame my disliking towards it. It has a great history (St. Kilian) and stands as a lovely, Gaelic name. Cillian Murphy is also a bearer of this name. Since I have heard of him and seen him star in his movies, I began to like it. I am very proud of my name

Pronounced Kill-ee-in.

I know a Killian who is a girl, I think it's a lovely girl's name, it was chosen as a variant of her grandmother's name, Gillian. In Irish it's pronounced kil-yan.

Ugh to the above. That's unforgivable. Nice name.

I really do like this name: I tend to prefer Irish names anyway, being Irish myself, but this one stands out to me. It's elegant but still masculine. :)

I'd also like to correct the above comment: it's not *really* pronounced "kil-yan" in Irish, but it might sound that way in some Irish accents. :) "KIL-ee-an" is correct.

"Elegant but still masculine" is a great way to describe this name! This is a true unique name - It's just plain cool.
