Taran 1
Gender Masculine
Pronounced Pron. TA-ran(Welsh)
  [key·IPA]

Meaning & History

Derived from Welsh and Cornish taran "thunder".
Taran is mentioned in the Welsh Mabinogion, a fact that gave rise to the theory that both the figure and the name might be faint memories of the Celtic god Taranis.
This thunder-god is also the source of the name of Taran mac Ainftech, a Pictish king from the 7th century.

In the literary world, Taran is the central character in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain (1964-1968).
