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

  

PERRAN.  Cornish form of Irish Kieran (q.v.), meaning "little black one," but following the rule of the Cymric p for Gaelic k.  Also see Cearan, Ciarán, Piran, and Pirin

... Perran's cell in Cornwall had a church built over it, called St. Pierans in Sabulo, or in the sand, and now Peranzabuloe.  And in the sand it is, for it was absolutely choked by drifting sands, and abandoned in favour of a new one.  In 1835 it was disinterred, and found to be a very curious specimen of ancient architecture. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
