Personal experiences with the name Kiran: | Edit

I named my horse Kyran. It was spelled with "I" but I liked the way it looked with "Y" better, and pronounce it with long "I" instead of "e" sound. I found this name in a baby name book at the book store. It said it was Eastern Indian for "streak of lightning".
