Any other ronans iv herd of were online or ronin from marvel :D" Apr. 17, 2020:
"I have been named Ronan since a very young age. was born in 2004, now 15. I have only heard of 2 other people named Ronan so far, haven't met either of them. A huge majority of the people I meet, at first mishear it as roman, or something else. Thats the only downside to having Ronan as a name, or a name at all, the mishearing. Because it is my name, I like it. That is all." Dec. 21, 2019:
"My son is 6 months old and is named Ronan. I've never met another Ronan. We call him Roni for a nickname. People either love it or don't like it at all. My grandmother especially loves it (shes a little Irish lady) we love his name and it just suits him so well!" Sep. 27, 2017:
"My sisters best friends name is Ronan, he is from Ireland. When we were having our son we wanted an Irish name. My sister recomended Ronan. We loved it. Our friends thought it was a weird name and tried to come up with a nick name and we got upset. When Ronan was born, our friends realised he looked like a Ronan and they have always called him Ronan. When we went to his first day of kinder. The teacher said, "oh, you are the other Ronan" we were shocked to hear there was another Ronan in his class.
When we tell some people his name, they think we said Roman but usualy they are hard of hearing. We LOVE his name! He was born in 2006 and is 10 now." Oct. 3, 2016:
"We named our son Ronan and we're still happy with it. There's not much teasing potential and it's a good masculine name. We get a lot of postive comments on it even though it seems like most people here haven't heard the name before. It sometimes gets misheard as Roman, Rowan, Roland, and Ryan." Feb. 18, 2011:
"I was thirty years old before I ever heard of someone else with my name. Most people love it once they get through mispronouncing or mispelling it. I spelled it twice for a teacher once and she asked me if I was sure..." Mar. 16, 2009:
"I want a kid called Ronan. I love it because it's really rare and it's such a lovely name. (I hate popular names!) Ronan Keating is also one of my obsessions, so it makes it even better :)" Jul. 10, 2008:
"This is our boy name we have picked out. It's a nice strong, masculine name and you can't rhyme too many things with it." Sep. 11, 2007:
"When I was over in the US, some people had trouble pronouncing my name, but most found it okay. Especially when they realised there is a Robert DeNiro film with the same sounding-name." Aug. 8, 2006:
