Taran is a gender-neutral name of Celtic origin, meaning “thunder.” A powerful title for a small being, Taran will stand to baby as they grow and mature. Taran is derived from Taranis, the Celtic god of thunder and Thor’s counterpart. The ancient Romans also knew of Taranis and compared him to their god Jupiter. However, don’t be surprised if naming baby Taran gifts them with a thunderous voice! Steeped in history and Celtic ethereality, Taran is a wonderful name for baby, whether you wish to honor your Celtic ancestry or just love how it sounds.
