My son's name is Kieran. We pronounce it KIE-ran. Making the kie sound like pie. I just think it sounds more masculine this way. We considered spelling it with a "y", but the "ie" just looks better.

I don't like this form of Ciarán because it bastardizes Irish spellings with the fada. I think it's disrespectful how the English language slaughters other languages in translation simply because they can't let a name be in its original language with original markers. This is evident in other Irish names like Seán, in which the fada is ignored or misplaced. If I named my child an Irish name, I would make sure the fada was evident in his name.

To the above anonymous poster: then the name isn't even an Anglicized version of Ciarán. It becomes a slaughtered attempt at an Irish name.

Geez, Anonymous, chill. EVERY language has bastardized every OTHER language. Come on, the Irish name Alastar? Shall the Greeks complain about Britons' inability to write Alexander properly in Greek?

Anyways, I think Kieran is a fine name. Personally, I've been seeing the name around more and more often. It has that trendy 'k' sound, it's interesting without being overly exotic, while also sounding un-frilly aka more manly.

I think this is a great name. I could see it used for a boy OR a girl. I usually pronounce it Keer-an.

Kieran means "the little dark one". The short from of Kieran is "Ciar" pronounced "KEER" which means "dark".

Don't like it. Sounds like the name of a stuck-up blond British guy.
