Other Origin(s):British, Irish
Meaning:Pure; Dark; Neolithic monument
Keryn is a beautiful girl's name and a respelling of Karen and Kerrin, with both Danish and Irish roots. As a Danish name, Keryn means "pure" and "dark," and entered the English language during the Medieval period, with ties to the English name Katherine. Through an Irish lens, Keryn may stem from cairns, which are neolithic stone monuments dotted across the Emerald Isle, some of which are still visible today! The Irish language does not include Ks and Ys, so Keryn presents parents with a modern, fresh take on a historical word.
