Meaning of the baby name GRANNUS.

  

GRANNUS.  Celtic name of a god of thermal springs, meaning "the brilliant."

    GRANNUS.  The name Granni or Grannus, "the brilliant," appears as that of a god of the ancient Celts who corresponded to Apollo (q.v.).  Grannus was a god of healing, who presided over thermal springs.  The popularity of such a god is easily explained, and it is not surprising to find that the worship of Grannus was adopted by the Roman soldiers.  A religion is often supposed to demonstrate its divine character by its success in healing bodily ailments.  The god Grannus is paired with the goddess Sirona, but what relationship was intended is uncertain. (An Encyclopaedia of Religions, Canney, 1921)
