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.

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.
