US Popularity:4029
Meaning:God is gracious
Siobhan is a feminine name of Irish origin. This popular name means “God is gracious” and can be traced all the way back to Ireland in the early fourteenth century. The introduction of the Anglo-Normans to Ireland in the Middle Ages brought with it a fresh batch of names and Siobhan is the Irish form of its Anglo-Norman counterpart Jehane. Siobhan is a consistently popular name in Ireland, but has gotten a recent boost in notoriety in the US thanks to Siobhan “Shiv” Roy, a lead character on HBO’s critically acclaimed series Succession.
