How would you pronounce Elian? TIA

MaroonPencil Tue 14-Nov-17 08:49:38

I don't know the name so when I first saw it I would pronounce it El Ee Ann.

EssentialHummus Tue 14-Nov-17 08:49:57

Not heard of it, would go for Elly-Ann.

Elian. Like Alien only with an eh sound

Like it's written: Eh-lian.

pipilangstrumpf Tue 14-Nov-17 09:08:37

Like Elias but with an n

Thanks, I would say 'El-lee-an/un' but it seems some would pronounce it El-liun (like lion) which I don't like as much

Love this name. The little Cuban boy who was rescued

Ell-ee-un or Ell-eye-un,

Yeah, like Alien but with and "eh" at the beginning.

Dixiestampsagain Tue 14-Nov-17 13:24:38

I would say it like you; I love the name.

If you add an A it's Eliana which IMO is much nicer but I'm biased.

Is it a girls name?

I knew one once. It was pronounced like the names Elle and Ian said one after the other (like the "alien but starting with an E" description given above).
