In Sweden we pronounce it OSS-ee-an. A boy in my school has this name.

I believe this'd be a cool name for a girl.

It's a nice enough sounding name, but I think this particular spelling might be tainted by the fact that James Macpherson's epic was proven to be fraudulent / a forgery.

The name Ossian may come from the Old Norse Odin (the name of a god in Norse mythology) which means rage, inspiration, frenzy. It may also come from another masculine Nordic/English name, Oswin, which means 'god's friend' or 'friend of the gods'.

This name is really cool. I'm thinking about vikings when I hear the name. Sounds very Nordic.

The name reminds me of The Story Of Óðian Járndaggardr.

This name is so cool. Very masculine. By the way, the name is not even Irish, it's a modern form of an Old Norse name.
