Not feminine at all!

This is originally a Sanskrit noun meaning ‘ray of sunlight’ and is a masculine noun in Sanskrit so should really be a boy’s name.

My name is Kiran and quite frankly, I think it is an amazing name. Technically it can be a girl and boy's name, but I am a girl and I think it is a great name for a girl. It is an incredible name, and also very unique. I hope more people call their daughter's Kiran because it is a beautiful name.

We named our son Kiran - we loved both the name and it's meaning - I have to add that the name Kieran is Irish and not connected in anyway to the name Kiran. We hoped when we named him that he would be the only Kiran in the school - which he was and still is even though he has moved up to a school with over 800 pupils. Unfortunately we hadn't anticipated the popularity of the name Kieran, there were three Kierans (in some form of spelling or other) in his class alone!

Kiran is not pronounced like the boy name Kieran (KEER-ən). The Sanskrit name Kiran is pronounced like 'Kir-ən' (the letter i' sounding like the 'i' in the word 'mint'). The 'i' in Kiran does not have a long 'EE' sound whereas the different origin name Kieran does.

This name is also used in Pakistan!

I agree with the user 'EkiAku'; the usage of the name Kiran isn't just Indian, it's also used in Pakistan. Kiran is written as 'کرن'. [noted -ed]

I'm personally not a fan of the name Kiran at all, though I do believe this name is only good for girls; I personally find this name quite ridiculous for a boy to have as this name is commonly used for girls!

This is part of the given name of Indian actor Uday Kiran (translates to 'rays of the morning'). Also, there is a film production house known as Usha Kiran or Usha Kiron (which translates as 'rays of dawn').

The Indian variant is pronounced ki-RUN.

I think it's worth stating it as an alternate spelling of 'Kieran', the male name. Being so much more used to that name, it's hard to imagine it as a female name, but maybe they're pronounced differently.

I have a friend named Kiran, but people (mainly teachers) have been calling her Karen for so long (misreading it as Karin), she jut has everyone outside of her family call her Karen. Personally, I think she should appreciate her name more, because it is beautiful.

It's my second name, and definitely (also) an Indian boys name. I don't really like it, honestly.

Kiran Shaw is a scale double in The Lord of the Rings trilogy (Peter Jackson, not those awful animated ones where Gollum looks like a frog) and is also the queen's servant in The Chronicles of Narnia movie.

I think this name is an absolutely unique and special name. It's a female's name, sorry men. ;)
