Meaning:Little deer
Ossin is a beautiful boy's name of Irish origin, meaning "little deer," and the perfect choice for a promising writer. Ossin is an alternative form of Ossian, the name James Macpherson chose for the narrator of his 18th-century epic poems Fingal and Temora. Since the release of those works, the name Ossian has become synonymous with several social and literary revolutions, such as the Romantic movement and the Gaelic revival. With any luck, your little Ossin will be just as much a mover and shaker, but whether they pioneer in poetry or prose is a destiny they'll have to decide!
