A variation of the name would be Flannery - as in Flannery O'Conner, a 20th-century author.

Flann doesn't mean red in Irish Gaelic. Red in Irish Gaelic is dearg.

I love this name! It's cute, I like it as male rather than female. I had some Flan today ^^ lol.

A flan is an English sort of pie with no top.

Flann would be a good name for a boy, choose Flannery for a girl. Flann and Flannery are both names I like.

Sorry, I can't separate this name in my mind from the flan dessert. :-(

The Old Irish form is Fland.
In modern Irish, Flann is pronounced in three different ways according to the three main dialects:
Gaedhlig Uladh [Ulster Irish, northern] has /fˠl̻ˠan̻ˠ/ kind of like English "flan";
Gaeilge Chonnacht [Connaught Irish, western] has /fˠl̻ˠaːn̻ˠ/ like English "lawn" with an f before it;
Gaelainn na Mumhan [Munster Irish, southern] has /fˠl̻ˠaun̻ˠ/ like English "clown" if it began with an f.
