- NAME ROOT:
- CIAR > CIARáN
- This name derives from the Gaelic given name “Ciarán”, meaning “little dark one" or "blacky“, from the Irish element “ciar”, meaning “black, dark”. The name is popularized by Irish saints dating back from the 5th century. Ciarán was one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland and is considered the first saint to have been born in Ireland, although the legend that he preceded Saint Patrick is questionable. Ciarán was bishop of Saigir (Seir-Kieran) and remains the patron saint of its successor, the diocese of Ossory.
