This is my brother's name, my mom chose it for the double meaning, little seal and a masterless samurai, my dad is Japanese and my mother is Irish so it was the perfect kind of name for him.

This isn't just a spelling variation of Ronan--which would actually change the name's origin and meaning so it's no longer Ronan.

autumnreverie Says:


It actually means "wave man" with the characters meaning "drifter" or "wanderer.''
