Conner is a boy's name that will find pride of place in a home of dog lovers. From the Irish conchobhar, Conner enjoys the meaning "lover of hounds," or for those with a taste for badass breeds, "lover of wolves." Not satisfied with close kinship to the revered and loyal canine, Conner also shares deep mythological connotations by virtue of Conchobar mac Nessa. This semi-historical king is an enduring figure in Ulster's canon of Irish legend, most remembered for his exceptional rule, bravery, and resourcefulness.
