I've just stumbled upon this name. I was actually researching the name "Noryan" as I met someone called that. He pronounced it nor-EYE-in. I thought it was intriguing, and this name seems to be the closest possible. Nice name, although the Noryan I met was quite... well, horrible. Still, he had a nice name.
I have a friend named this. We all call him Ryan. He's amazingly funny, and all of my other friends are always shocked when they hear his real name. He says it means "warrior" (I have NO IDEA where he got that idea)

Anyway, I personally don't like the name. The pronunciation and spelling is just too complicated for anyone to get right.
Udit Narayan is a famous bearer of this name, he's a well known playback singer for movies in the Hindi and Tamil language.
This is also a surname, and is pronounced nah-rye-en.
Another spelling of this name is Narain - a namesake is Narain Karthikeyan, the Indian racing driver.
Narayan is actually synonymous with the god Vishnu. They are one and the same. This can be found in A.C. Bhaktivedanta's 10-canto series, "The Srimad Bhagavatam."
