Nms

Are they pronounced the same?

Cillian to me is Sil-ee-uhn
Killian to me is Kill-ee-uhn/Kill-ee-ann.

I agree with PP that they are not the same name. Either way, NMS.

And from behindthename:
Cillian: Probably from Gaelic ceall "church" combined with a diminutive suffix. This was the name of a 7th-century Irish saint who evangelized Franconia.

Killian: Anglicized variant of CILLIAN

Totally the same name.

They're both pronounced Kill-ee-in. Cillian is the traditional Irish spelling.

After I shake the beer reference, I start to wonder what Ian did.
