Hernan—often spelled as Hernán—is a masculine Spanish name with dual roots in German and Irish. Short for Hernando, the name ultimately comes from the Germanic Hernan from Spain's Visigoth culture. Meaning "gentle or spiritual traveler," Hernan suits the old soul coming to grace the world with its sublime presence and otherworldly edge. As a form of the Irish Hernon, from the surname Ó hEarnáin, the name continues its high-minded tone with the definitions "knowing" and "experienced." If you've got a sneaky suspicion baby has been here before, Hernan makes a worthy appellation to help guide your little one on their new path.
