Comments for the name Killian


Comments for KILLIAN:

I think this is a very beautiful and strong name. I have always loved it. This name is also very common in Bavaria, where I am from, because of St Killian (or Kilian) from Ireland who was a Bishop in Würzburg. So for a long time I didn't know it was Irish, because it is a traditional Bavarian name, too.

This "name" is wack wack and again wack.

Aw, I don't think this name is wack at all! I like this variation more than Cillian (it sounds more like it should be pronounced Sil-lian, if you get me :P) Killian is also a character in the Wicca/Sweep series by Cate Tiernan.

I know a boy named Killian (born in 1991/92). We actually got to know each other because I kept talking to him just to say his name!

Killian's Irish Red, anyone? It's a beer.

My best friend is planning on naming her son Eric Killian. I am not a huge fan of the name, but it is growing on me. I would never use it as a first name though.

I used to know a boy with this name and he always got teased for the "kill" part in his name.

I know a Killian and she's a girl. Her mother's name is Jillian and her father's name is Karl. Anyway, it's tough for us to introduce ourselves to new people when we're together. Why? My name is Leanne. And ever since the movie, Kill Bill, came out, it's been even sillier. Just make sure, if you're thinking of giving this name to your child, that you don't know any Leannes. We Leannes thank you in advance.

I think that this is a wonderfully strong name that I would consider giving to my child when I have one, if not as a first name, as a middle name. I like it better spelt with a K than with a C.

It's a good beer, but I can't imagine naming a child this. Maybe his twin brother could be Porter.

My nephew's name. A very strong, lordly name, deserving of a proper middle and last name. I mean, Killian Smith would just be kind of silly. So, caution is definitely needed, but I'm rather fond of it, even if it's a bit old-fashioned. Evokes memories of an older era.

I don't like this name. The first four letters spell "kill".
-- bananarama  3/18/2009
There is a mistake in this name's description. Killian can't be a variant of Cillian, since the letter "k" does not exist in Irish. We always use "c", and it always has the English "k" sound. Killian must be an anglicization of Cillian. [noted -ed]

I love the name Cillian, but I really don't like this spelling. I can't help reading it as "Kill Ian".
-- Anonymous User  6/6/2009
Is Ian really that unpopular that you want to kill him! XD lol

As mentioned above, Killian is a character in the Sweep series. Though, in the book, his name is said to mean 'strife.'

Killian Donnelly is an Irish-born actor who played Combeferre in the 2012 movie production of Les Miserables.

I love this name, I am sometimes torn between the spellings Cillian & Killian. But ultimately I think, in the US, Cillian would need pronunciation and spelling corrections all the time. I also like the nickname Killy which I discovered when reading the manga "Blame!"

St. Kilian (also spelled Killian & Cillian) was an Irish traveling bishop and martyr. Würzburg Cathedral in Würzburg Germany was dedicated to him. His saint's day is July 8th.

Kill Ian!

Awful name.
-- Ali Hassan  1/6/2015
Yeah, I still can't help but feel wrong about a name with the first four letters spelling out the word "Kill" and then "Ian".
-- gch1995  1/19/2015
I first heard this name on the show 'Once Upon A Time' (It's Captain Hook's real name), and as soon as I heard it I absolutely loved it! It's unique but also easy to say and spell without several errors, unlike 'Cillian'.
