Saeran

Saeran seems to be a male name possibly of Irish origin maning “noble” although I’m not sure of the accuracy of that. I’ve also seen it listed as coming from Welsh Saer meaning “carpenter, wright” with the diminutive suffix -an meaning “Saer the younger” or “little Saer”. There’s a church in Wales called St. Saeran’s Church dedicated to Saint Saeran, a Celtic bishop.

Saeran also seems to be a Korean male name (also spelled Serran) written with Korean hangul meaning “three + that/what is called” or “bird + that/what is called” though it has several meanings in hanja (Korean reading of Chinese characters) with the 세 (se) reading such as:

  • 世 (generation; world; society; lifetime)

  • 稅 (tax; duty)
  • 勢 (power, force; energy; military strength)

  • 歲 (year; age)
  • 細 (fine, thin; slender)
  • 洗 (to wash)
  • 貰 (get; have; obtain)
  • 笹 (bamboo grass)
  • 說 (explain; seek; talk)

and with the 란 (ran): 

  • 欄 (column)
  • 卵 (egg, ovum)
  • 蘭 (orchid)

Origin: Irish, Welsh, Korean

Variants:

  • Serran
  • Seran
