Other Origin(s):Greek, Welsh
Meaning:Battle rule, little battler
Cathan is a boy's name of Irish, Greek, and Welsh origin, meaning "battle rule" or "little battler." Historically a surname, this rare pick is related to many classic names, such as Cathal, Cain, Cayden, and even Catherine. Cathan is relatively new to the playground—born around 2001—so you can expect baby to stand out amongst their pals. They'll also inevitably unleash the mightier side from time to time, especially during the dreaded bath time. Perhaps a few battleships amongst the bubbles will turn that frown upside down!
