I agree with Shannon Reeve. I'm a female Shannon (of Irish decent) and I have always found the name to mean wise old owl. I am also one of the most disorganized humans on the planet. I believe that the name "Shannon" indicates that you have at least one parent with a link to Ireland, (mine is the Shanley's) and bugger all else

I am a male. I have always had the need to know why things are the like this. Meanings are always important and analyzing is always at the forefront of all things. I am very order conscious, I am a neat freak so I never lose anything. I have met a few males with the name and they were there but never stayed to long to get to know. I never had a relationship with another of my namesake nor would I want to. I do find that I know things just because I know them and I don't know how or where I acquired the knowledge. I am an adamant believer of reading and sharing what I know because of what I read.

Just out of curiosity I'm going to through this out there. I'm of the female breed of we Shannon's. personally I've noticed through my 30 some years that most of us, at least in Missouri, are male. That's not the curiosity, just an observation. I honestly cannot remember a single female Shannon that I have ever gotten along with, and I get along with most everyone. No issues with the guys though, and before the gutter comments start, I'd never date a person with the same name as myself. just to weird. I'm a firm believer that a name helps build the personality. Anyone else have problems with their own kind?

My name is basically 'Shannon', I just have a different spelling. I am much more of a care free person not who minds so much about order. Aside from that everything else is true

In Ireland, Shannon was used as a boy name and then it was transitioned into a girl name. I am somewhat like this but I am more of a free spirit than big on order and service. Another meaning is: Wise old owl.
