Rohan is a gender-neutral name of both Sanskrit, Arabic, and Irish origins. A cross-cultural name, this could be an ideal versatile choice to give baby plenty of inspiration. Rohan comes from the Sanskrit word rohana, meaning “ascending,” an can be a perfect meaning to uplift your little one. In Irish, the name comes from the word ruadh, meaning "red" and alludes to a red-haired person. Thanks to its Arabic connections, Rohan can also mean "spiritual," and can be a great choice if you want to share your faith with baby. For a more nature-esque aesthetic, Rohan can also be a respelling of Rowan, connecting baby to a majestic tree that is known for its centuries-long life and mythical roots. This moniker has become a steady stayer on the charts in recent years, especially during the late 90s and early 2000s, making it a classic choice with a Y2K aesthetic to match baby's old soul.
