Kieron is a boy’s name of Sanskrit origin and a variation of another boy name, Kiran. Meaning “beam of light” or “ray of light,” this name is surely an apt description for the newest bright spark in your life. Kieron’s lovely sound is also quite similar to the Irish name Ciaran. However, that’s where the similarities end, as Ciaran actually means “black.” As such, Kieron certainly shows the duality of life, both light and dark displayed in equal measure. No matter which origin and meaning resonates with you, Kieron will suit baby perfectly.
