Gender: M Origin of Sean: Irish variation of John Sean's Popularity in 2015: #211

Sean, after a long reign as one of the top Irish boys' name in the US, has now slipped as parents look to fresher Irish choices such as Liam and Aidan. In Ireland, Sean is still in the Top 10, but variation Senan, an Anglicized spelling of diminutive Seanan, is also stylish. While Sean is the Irish form of John, Seanan and Senan may be thought of either as Sean diminutives or relatives of the Latin word "senator".
