You don't plan to call a child Aryan????

I'd assume Arian. Like the race the Nazis thought superior? Is it a name?

AppalachianWalzing Wed 18-Oct-17 23:01:42

'That child with the racist parents'

As in nation?
Um. I wouldn't.

You seriously can't call a child Aryan, however you pronounce it.

Air i en. But you wouldn't unless you wanted Nazism jibes.

Mrsknackered Wed 18-Oct-17 23:02:19

Oh I duno, maybe like the way Nazi's did/do.


Neolara Wed 18-Oct-17 23:02:23

Because you're thinking of naming your dc "Master-race"?

It has <ahem> connotations though. Have you tried Googling?

zozozoo Wed 18-Oct-17 23:02:41

I think it's nahtz-ee

There's one at DS2's nursery. I can't remember if I've heard it said out loud. I think I would pronounce it: Ah-reeun Or A-reeun. Am I right?!

Arian - welsh, meaning silver (arry-an)
Aryan - Nazi connotations...

ElizabethShaw Wed 18-Oct-17 23:03:52

The one I've met was Arry-an rather than Air-ee-an.

Jaysus, OP. Are you going to have a sibling set of Aryan, Lebensraum, Adolf and Mengele?

Better hope they're blue eyed blondes...

SueGeneris Wed 18-Oct-17 23:05:09

Also I think the boy at preschool spells it Aaryan.

Icloud54 Wed 18-Oct-17 23:06:36

Oh my gosh! Did not no it had a link with the nazis. Oops!
I think it's usually spelt Aaryan.
Will not be using the name!

SueGeneris Wed 18-Oct-17 23:07:19

Crikey. Nazis? I think the OP means this name:

SuperBeagle Wed 18-Oct-17 23:08:25

Arry (like Harry)-en.

Yep, heavily associated with the Nazis and the perceived "Aryan race".
