Pronunciation of Sian

Spell it like Siân, pronounce it like Sh - ar - n.

Welsh origin - the English equivalent is Jane.

The 'Si' is pronounced 'sh' as in ship, shout and shed. The 'â' is elongated by the circumflex (or in Welsh - to bach (toe bac-ck) - which means little roof) so is pronounced like an 'ar' as in start, bar and car. The 'n' is a short sound, as in can, pan and run.

I have frequently been frustrated by people miss-spelling and miss-pronouncing my name...but I wouldn't choose another one. The thing that annoys me the most, is when someone asks you how to spell your name, but doesn't wait/listen for your answer, before they begin writing, and have already incorrectly put "sh" on the page....

Pronunciation of Sian in Bangor, N Ireland.

My name is Siân, and I pronounce it SHAN- rhymes with Dan.

This is probably because I am from the north of Ireland (near Belfast) however- going with the original Welsh pronunciation is the best bet unless someone specifies! :)
