Rohan is also a surname, a variant form of Rowan, an Irish surname which is the anglicized form of Ó Ruadháin meaning “descendant of Ruadhán”, the latter derived from Irish ruadh meaning “red”, derived as a nickname for someone who had red hair or a ruddy complexion. Rohan was also used by J.R.R. Tolkien as the name of a place meaning “horse country” in Sindarin, a fictional language he came up with.
