Other Origin(s):Gaelic
Meaning:God is gracious
Iaian is a unique take on the traditional! This masculine moniker has Scottish and Gaelic roots, and is, interestingly, a variation of the popular choice Jonathan. Meaning “God is gracious,” this name offers up both a connection to one’s faith and an opportunity to stand out. While the alternative spellings Ian and Iain are slightly more well-known, your little Iaian will no doubt extol the virtues of this particular version—along with demonstrating the grace, kindness, and compassion that is inherent in its meaning.
