I am at my 30 weeks and my new bubba will be a boy. My husband and me like the name of Kieren, but I know it is not a very popular name here. Can some one give me some idea about this?

It's a lovely Gaelic name. I will say that I have also seen it spelled Kieran, and the gaelic spelling is Ciaran.

I prefer the name spelt as Kieran but I think it is a lovely name

I like it. And spelt like that like Kieren Perkins.

As my eldest son is a Kieran I may well be biased but I love the name

Its a nice name. Not too popular but not out there either.

I think it's nice. Not too common, but not so unusual that people will think it's made up.
I think it had a burst of popularity in the 70's because all the Kierans (spelt like that) I know are in their 30s & 40s.
I did meet one who pronounces it Ky-ren (rhymes with Byron). Please don't do that!

I don't mind it...I like it spelt Kieran. I quite like Rowan as well!

I've always liked Kieran.
It was on my boys lost but sadly DH didn't like it.

My eldest is Kiran ... so I love the name. not too bothered by the spelling, as long as you are okay with it being misspelt as the more common KierAn.

I know a Kieran in his 30s. He's gorgeous, just like his name.

Kieran is a lovely name. I may have used it for DS had I not been working with one at the time.

I had a boyfriend at school called Kieran He'd be about 29 now. I like it. Underrated I think!
But like PPs, prefer it with the a .

My eldest is a Kieran. I love it and it suits him perfectly.
Posted 04 February 2013 - 07:14 PM
I don't hate it, but I don't necessarily look favourably upon it as the 2 I knew were both tools.

DH is a Kieron. A bit different and he likes it.
It's funny at get togethers because there is DH and then another Kieran. So we just say kieRAN or kieRON.

Going against the grain here, but it just doesn't appeal to me at all.
