First Name Directory - Starting with C

This site is dedicated to maintaining a database of first names from all over the world. We are still working to add all meanings to the names and sort them by gender, ethic and other behavior.

Most names come from the European and Arab area, especially italian, spanish, french and german firstnames.

"Connor" is an Irish and Scottish male given name, anglicised from the Celtic word "Conchobhar", meaning "lover of hounds", its popularity likely derived from the name of Conchobar mac Nessa, a semi-legendary king of Ulster described in the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology. Variant forms of Connor include Conor and Conner. In its native Ireland, the Conor version is among the most popular of boys' given names.
Caelan is an Irish or Gaelic name of origin meaning many things but most commonly "slender".
Conle, or Connla, is a legendary character in Irish Mythology. He was the Red son of the high king of Ireland Conn of the Hundred Battles. He was with his father on the hill of Usnech when he saw a beautiful woman, invisible to the rest of the company. She tempted him to go with her to the Plain of Delight and live forever, until Conn's druid Coran drove her off by singing, but not before she threw a magic apple at the boy.
Colm (on German: "Dove") is a masculine given name of Irish origin which derives from Columba of IONA. Another form is Colum. As a family name, Colm rarely occurs.
Channing is a mostly male and also less common female name, which comes from the French and English or Irish and means "young Wolf". The name is used as a last name.
Cathal is a common given name in the Irish, Scottish Gaelic and English languages. The name is derived from two Celtic elements: the first, cath, means "battle"; the second element, val, means "rule". There is no feminine form of Cathal unlike names such as Adrian. The Gaelic name has several Anglicised forms, such as Cathal, Cathel, Cahal, Cahill and Kathel. It has also been Anglicised as Charles, although this name is of an entirely different origin as it is derived from a Germanic element, karl, meaning "free man".
Cormac is a masculine given name in the Irish and English languages. The name is ancient in the Irish language and is also seen in the rendered Old Norse as Kormákr.
Cian is an Irish male name, meaning "old-fashioned, very old", which probably dates back to the Irish say character Cian. The anglicised form of the name Keenan is derived from its diminutive Cianán.
