Piran is the name of a beautiful town in the coast of Slovenia, and its Italian version is Pirano (which could also be used as a name). Although in here they suggest a pronunciation similar to that of Kieran (stressing the first syllable), I pronounce it as "pea-RAHN". However pronounced, I think it would make for a beautiful and unique name.

Phil Says:


How do you pronounce this name? Also, where did you find the meaning? I searched around and nobody else gives it this meaning. Although I like the meaning you have given it I am wondering about it's accuracy.
