Like it?I know several Sians but it only struck me recently what a pretty name it is.Am in a real 'names' mood tonight <geek emoticon>
reminds me of SIan Lloyd. No.
love it - the only one I know has a circumflex on the a
How would you pronounce it?I know 3 different Sians! 1= Shaan1= Siy-Ann1= See-ArnSo now I am confused!
really?! Have only ever known Shaans
Yes! I only ever knew Shaans, but now have a See-arn neighbour and a Siy-Ann work colleague!!Tis very odd, but I like Shaan.
there are lots in Wales!I don't like it much. It's hard to pronounce if you don't know how to say it. Shaan is correct I believe.
It's the Welsh equivelant of Jane. Most of the Sians I know are around my age or older.
I love Sian. You're right it's a very pretty name. Also it works for both girly-girls and tomboys, little girls and grown women.This was my favourite girls name when I was pregnant. DS's name is actually very similar.

Being a Welsh name, the proper pronunciation is Shaan, as others have said. It's not hard to say but, if you tell people it is your name, they may argue about how to pronounce it
Not keen, it sounds a bit hard.
