Irish: from an Anglicized form of the Gaelic personal name Cillín, a pet form of Ceallach ( see Kelly ). The name was borne by various early Irish saints, including the leader of a 7th-century mission to Franconia and Thuringia, hence the popularity of the personal name Kilian in medieval central Europe.
