If you have a feeling that baby has somewhat of a mystical aura, you might want to consider the name Kirwan. Typically masculine, Kirwan has strong Irish and Gaelic roots, solidifying its enchantment and charm. More commonly found as a surname, it comes from the Gaelic Ó Ciardhubháin, composed of the elements ciar, meaning “dark,” and dubh, meaning “black.” Although Kirwan is thought to mean “little dark one,” we have no doubt your little one will light up even the darkest of places with their beaming personality and infectious radiance.
