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

  

ORAN (אוֹרָן).  Kolatch has this name in his Complete Dictionary of English and Hebrew First Names (1984) where he gives it an Aramaic origin and renders it "light."  Apparently it is the same as Aharon, biblical Aaron, which see.

ORAN.  Irish.  An Anglicized form of Gaelic Odhrán (q.v.), meaning "little pale-faced man."

XXX
Thus Oran mused, the youngest and most fair
Of that devoted zealous little band
That now for many a laborious year
Followed Columba's lead from land to land,
Daring the danger of the narrow seas
To plant the Cross among the Hebrides.

XXXI
Young, but most fervid of their brotherhood,
Fair Oran was, whose faith leaped like a sword
From out the sheath, and could not be subdued
When brandished in the service of the Lord,
To whom—as sparks leap upward from a fire—
His soaring thoughts incessantly aspire.
(Prophecy of St. Oran, Blind, 1881)
