Other Origin(s):Irish
Meaning:Bean of light; He who was born in a dark place
Kiran is a boy's name of Sanskrit that means "beam of light." Forged from the Sanskrit word kiraṇa, meaning "ray" or "ray of light," Kiran embodies the very essence of nourishment. One may link Kiran to the similar-sounding Kieran, which comes from the Irish Ciaran, and offers an alternative and diometric meaning of "he who was born in a park place." But, one cannot have the light without the dark, and Kiran offers baby a legacy of enlightened thought and inspiring deeds.
