Tiernan

Meaning: lord, chief

Origin: Irish

Reason for Choosing: Mentioned on a nameberry forum

Opinion: I like it. Like Kieran, with a couple twists. No easy nicknames though. (Tier would probably be the best.) It is currently high in Ireland (and has been used for many kings and saints there), but not in the top 1000 in North America. Great unique choice with a lot of history!
