Displayed below is the baby name popularity trend for the boy's name Curran and also indicating how rare this name is.

Surprising but the fact - It doesnt even feature in the top common 1000 names worldwide.

It took me nearly 2 months to locate this data ... so that i can slap on those people's face and help them increase their vocab and pronounciation abilities.

All thanks to my school and college friends for mis-pronouncing this over years. But at the end, who cares.

To conclude, i would like to thank all those who have got my name correct on the first go.

NOTE : Pls dont mind certain words used in this blog arent professional. Its just the frustration flowing out in form of words.
