Originating from the Irish language, the boy’s name Ahern means “horse-lord.” This name derives from the surname Ó hEachthigheirn, in which Each means “steed” and thighearna means "lord." Aherne soon became the popular Anglicized variation of the name. Although Aherne is typically used as a surname in Ireland, it can also be a lovely first name to honor baby’s Irish heritage.
