Riannon: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Riannon

Riannon

Pronunciation: ree-AH-nən (key)

Origin of the name Rhiannon:

Borrowed from the Welsh, Rhiannon is an ancient Celtic name of uncertain derivation. Some believe it to be derived from the Old Celtic Rigantona (great queen). The name, which is borne in Celtic Mythology by a goddess of fertility, was not used as a given name until the 20th century. Its popularity outside Wales is due in large part to the song "Rhiannon" by the rock group Fleetwood Mac.
