Would the nickname Dan/danny work?

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Sun 17-Jul-16 13:21:27

Yes I think so! Is it pronounced Zy-dan? It's lovely. smile

mzS1990 Sun 17-Jul-16 17:37:01

Yes that's how we will pronounce it smile thank you

Why not just call him Dan or Daniel?

Sounds like an alien from Dr Who... grin
Sorry if that is offensive - but it is an honest opinion.

I thought zydaan would be pronounced The footballer. Yes Danny or Dan would be fine for a nickname, but it's a short name anyway, why use a nickname?

mzS1990 Mon 18-Jul-16 13:43:42

I've heard it pronounced both ways. I think they sound the same anyway smile but yea it's like the footballer, just different spelling.

We want an Islamic name and also I don't like daniel really.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Mon 18-Jul-16 13:47:04

Oooooh sorry I thought it was more like Zy (rhymes with eye) Dan. I like either pronunciation. It's much nicer than Daniel lovely.

mzS1990 Mon 18-Jul-16 13:52:19

Sorry I'll elaborate. Islamic name with a not so islamic nickname

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Mon 18-Jul-16 14:31:18

How about Adam?

BendydickCuminsnatch Mon 18-Jul-16 15:51:13

Really like it! A much more interesting choice than Daniel or Adam.

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Mon 18-Jul-16 16:49:27

I know I suggested Adam but I agree with bendy

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Mon 18-Jul-16 17:34:52

Sorry, just to clarify the reason I suggested Adam is because it is Islamic but also English (I think). Would have been a pretty random suggestion otherwise!!!

I like it, and Dan/Danny are good as nicknames.

mzS1990 Mon 18-Jul-16 21:00:39

Thanks everyone. I love love love Adam- was actually debating it with my first born. It just never seemed to be 'right' though it's a beautiful name.

I like it ! You could do Zydane or Zydan spellings to encourage the Danny nickname ?

There is Aden, Ayan, Adnan, Aslan ??
