History and Origin
Irish: from Gaelic Rónán, originally a byname representing a diminutive form of rón seal (the animal). The name is recorded as borne by various early Celtic saints, but there has been much confusion in the transmission of their names and most of them are also reliably named as Ruadhán (see Rowan). The most famous is a 5th-century Irish saint who was consecrated as a bishop by St Patrick and subsequently worked as a missionary in Cornwall and Brittany.
