Meaning of Nolan

Nolan is an Irish name originating from the transferred use of a surname (O Nualláin) meaning a descendant of Nuallán. The "nuall" in Gaelic means "chariot, the champion". The surname is also sometimes loosely translated as "The descendant of the town crier". And we're not talking about cry babies. The etymology “crier” derives from the first chief of the Ó Nualláin clan who held the hereditary office of herald to the Kings of Leinster (a province in the east of Ireland). A herald was a messenger sent by monarchs to communicate important proclamations throughout the country; therefore the "crier", which means. Curiously, the name Nolan is not on the Top 100 list of most used names in Ireland (or anywhere in the UK for that matter). It's more unlike North America right now, sitting in the Top 100 of most favorite boy's names lists in Canada and the United States. However, Nolan is more popular per capita in France and is in the Top 100 in Belgium, too. Apparently, there is a broader cultural appreciation to the name of this curiously Irish boy beyond Erin's borders.

Personality

The Number 2 personality in numerology is all about cooperation and balance. It is the number of diplomats and mediators. They are not leaders, but strive instead for harmony in associations. These are the peacemakers. Equality and fairness are important in their relationships, and they are willing to share power and responsibility to achieve a harmonious outcome. This personality is calm and patient, waiting for things to evolve rather than aggressively pushing for an outcome. They are good-natured and easy-going, and they care deeply on an emotional and spiritual level. Twos appreciate beauty and nature and intend to make the world a better place.

Popularity

Nolan's name is experiencing most of its popularity right now. The name has always been on the US popularity charts since the government began tracking naming trends as far back as 1880, no doubt influenced by Irish Americans. However, the 21st century is showing the most promise for this name; 2011 marks the first year Nolan finally landed a spot in the Top 100 list of the most favored boys' names in the country. This is a name to watch out for - one that we hope will come up more in the years to come. Nolan is a name with a distinct Irish flavor that appeals to parents looking for names of Celtic-Gaelic origin, or those who generally find Irish sounding names attractive. It's also worth noting that Nolan gained some 300 spots on the American male naming charts during the prime years of Nolan Ryan's baseball career (a career that spanned 27 years between 1966 and 1993). Considered one of the greatest pitchers of all time with a career record of seven hitless games, Nolan Ryan was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1999. So not only is Nolan a big name for fans of the Emerald Isle , but it's also a great option for baseball fans alike. Nolan has "screams" and we are finally starting to hear the "screams" from him.
