Also a surname, as born by Irish comedian Dylan Moran (b. 1971).

Not acceptable in the United States, as it sounds like "moron."

In Hebrew, it's pronounced "mo-RAHN", different from the English "moron".

In Hebrew, it's actually the name of a type of Israeli flower. Never heard of it meaning "teacher". "Moreh" is "teacher". [noted -ed]

I think I've seen this as a surname before. Not very common, though.

And actually, one of my middle school teachers was named Moran. I know how it's pronounced. But still, looks too close to "moron." If you live in an English-speaking country, wouldn't recommend it. She told us that she always hated the name because it indeed caused classmates and friends to bully her as a "moron."
