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

  

CORAN.  Celtic name, possibly meaning "horned," from a diminutive form of cor (a round hill), or corr "a snout." (?).  See Cornish Corin, and Latin Corineus.

    The king in fear at what the maiden said, which he heard though he could not see her, called aloud to his Druid, Coran by name.
    "Oh, Coran of the many spells," he said, "and of the cunning magic, I call upon thy aid.  A task is upon me too great for all my skill and wit, greater than any laid upon me since I seized the kingship.  A maiden unseen has met us, and by her power would take from me my dear, my comely son.  If thou help not, he will be taken from thy king by woman's wiles and witchery." 
    Then Coran the Druid stood forth and chanted his spells towards the spot where the maiden's voice had been heard.  And none heard her voice again, nor could Connla see her longer... (Celtic Fairy Tales, Jacobs, 1892)
