i like my name, Kerin, my parents told me that it means magical or mythical creature. (Japanese=giraffe....dont ask!). 

This name may be a form of Kirin (also Qilin), an East Asian mythical creature who punishes the wicked. It became associated with giraffes after giraffes were brought to China in the 15th century from Kenya and they were called "kirins" after the mythical beasts.
