Diminutive of Sean or Irish
"wise, old"

Seanan Origin and Meaning

The name Seanan is a boy's name meaning "wise, old".
Seanan and its more-popular variation Senan are connected to the Latin word "senator" and are ancient saints' names, but may also be thought of as diminutives of Sean, the Irish form of John, given that the suffix "an" is an Irish diminutive meaning "little". Virtually unknown in the US, it might appeal as an update for the no-longer-stylish Sean.
