Origin of the name CEARAN.
Etymology of the name CEARAN.
Meaning of the baby name CEARAN.


CEARAN.  The same as Irish Ciarán (q.v.), meaning "little black one."  Also spelled Ceirin, and KieranPiran is a variant form. 

    Cearan, or Ceirin, from ciar, black, was the name of one of the twelve Irish bishops whom St. Patrick consecrated.  He betook himself to solitude in a place surrounded with bogs in Ireland, called from him Saiger, or Sier Kieran; but a tribe of disciples followed him, and a monastery arose; so, in search of loneliness, he fled to Cornwall, where he lived in a cell, and taught the inhabitants so much, that they ascribed to him even their knowledge of mining; and the 5th of March, his day, was considered as the tinners' holiday, in honour of their patron saint. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
