Yay-sen would be my automatic response, but I've never heard it before so may be way off...

"Ya-sen" bit like Yasmine. How is the correct way to pronounce it?

I think I'd say Yay seen, but I've never known one so don't really know!

RicStar Sun 22-Nov-20 14:15:11

I think i would say yaz-en if i just saw it but could also think yah-sen and I wouldn't know which without hearing it.

Yah s’n

It's not a name I've come across.

First reaction would be like Jason with a Y
But happy to be corrected.

I have a son whose name is Yasin. We pronounce it as Ya-sin but some people do say Ya-seen

EasyLifer Sun 22-Nov-20 14:18:56

Yay sun, rhymes with Jason?

Kittytheteapot Sun 22-Nov-20 14:20:26

Yah zen

TotalBitch Sun 22-Nov-20 14:21:00

Yah-Sen? Maybe yah-zen? That's without googling obviously!

Supposedly; "Yasin (also spelled Yassin or Yaseni or Yassine or Yaseen or Jasin or Yacine; Arabic: ياسين‎, IPA: [ˈjɑːsiːn]) is a surname and unisex given name of Arabic origin. The name comes from a chapter (surah) of the Quran called Ya-Sin. It is an epithet of the prophet Muhammad."

We know a Yassin - with a short "a"

berrygirlie Sun 22-Nov-20 14:23:33

Supposedly pronounced Ya-seen

Whenwillow Sun 22-Nov-20 14:26:15

Yah-zen, if I didn't know otherwise (short A)

I’d hazard a guess at “yayz-n”
