I love the medieval-fantasy sound of it. Strong and simple. I of course prefer it for a boy.

The name Rohan is a legitimate spelling of "Rowan" (pronounced simply "Row-an") and originated in Scotland (centuries before Lord of the Rings and totally unrelated to the Indian Sanskrit version pronounced "Ro-han"). Whereas Rowan can be masculine or feminine, Rohan is only masculine.

As a British name, Rohan is a derivative of "Rowan" (pronounced the same, i.e. "Ro-wan"). It originates in Scotland meaning "red haired" and is unrelated to the Indian/Sanskrit version (pronounced "Ro-han"). Unfortunately thanks to Lord of the Rings a lot of people will now pronounce the British version incorrectly!
