A city in Algeria bears this name.

Used as name in Hebrew. Found in the official Hebrew Names Book since the '80s. Started to be used in late '60s early '70s.

Multiple origins:
1. Play on "Oren" which is a common Hebrew name. In the Bible Oren Tree means Pine Tree.
2. Oran = Or + Ran = Light + Song.

This name also corresponds with the Gaelic Òran meaning 'song' and I'm sure some parents may have chosen it for this meaning.

It's a GIRLS NAME!

How is it a girl's name? The only popularity data of Oran is for males. Plus, it's an anglicization of Odhrán, and Saint Odhrán, the only famous bearer, was a male saint.
