  1. She was conceived while rowing down the Grand Canyon.

  2. Beautiful unique Irish name meaning redhead

  3. My husband and I wanted a nature-based name for our little girl. We had a few options on the table but came across Rowan in a baby naming app. It’s a tree that, in Celtic folk tradition, helps guard against evil spirits or spells. We enjoy the mysticism behind the name as well. We also like that we have a sweet nickname for her too: Ro!

  4. We wanted a name that had a Celtic origin and worked for any gender.

  5. It’s just a beautiful name all around.

  6. We have Irish roots and in Celtic mythology the Rowan tree is known as the ‘tree of Life’. It’s a sacred tree that protects the dwelling of which it grows and symbolizes wisdom.
    We found that to be beautiful. It’s a less common name but not unheard of or too unusual. We find it to be simple, sweet and beautiful!
