Comments on Ciaran:

I like Ciaran SO much more than Kieran. I’ve recently seen it on a few girls in other parts of the country; that is so wrong. Ciaran has a perfectly good feminine– Ciara.

I have named my baby Ciaran, I just loved this spelling, that is one of the reasons I choose this name. I think it is such a strong sounding name.
