My six year old son's name is Ean. No one ever'says is wrong they just spell it wrong. I chose Ean becuse I like to be different.

I have always understood this to be Scots Gaelic, and equivalent to my own name of Iain meaning John (God is Gracious)

My name is David Ean Paxxxxxx I love the name, the'spelling and the origin. I gave my son'the name as well. Phon'tically correct. For those who say It'spelled incorrectly. Pronounce Ivan now remove the 'v' and say it!!

My Parents named me Ean so my name would match my Grandfathe's in'tials. It's defiantly a conversation starter (with the ladies you know❤️)and I have never met someone personally with my name making me feel unique. To all the OG Eans out there, celebrate and turn up

Yes, I had a friend name Pairlee. I pronounced it like pear-lee because that's what it looks like, but she'said It's pronounced like Carly, but with a P. It's spelled kind of odd because It's not common. i've only met one person with that name.

03/24/2023 22:27:40

My husband and I named our son Ean five years ago. We have n't heard of any other boys named Ean spelling it E-A-N. My husband has given me a hard time for 5 years because I spelled it this way. I'm happy to hear that other people have also spelled Ean'this way!!!

I LOVE the name, it is my son's name and he is never pronounced wrong. I know of 2 other people with the'same spelling. The'spelling and the name fit my son very well. I was told that this version of the name is of German Origin meaning God is Gracious.

01/10/2023 22:35:22

I rarely get people pronouncing it wrong but often get comments on'the'spelling. This is the pre-christian spelling of "Ian" and is pronounced the'same but has a different meaning. Ean means "guardian" whereas Ian is a Christian derivation of John meaning "The Lord is gracious; gift of God."

This has recently become one of my favorite baby names, and I am considering naming my daughter Annika. I realize that it is Swedish/Scandanavian, but my daughter will be a mix of Chinese and BrIt'sh. I hope that it is appropriate nonetheless because I love the name!

It's my name. No one I know has It'spelled the'same way, and I know about five Ians. People are always trying to spell it "Ian". It is really annoying.

11/24/2022 01:29:02

Our son's name is Ean. Comes from the Isle of Man - Manx language. Am told the original correct pronunciations is like 'Eon' - or as an'ther'said 'Ivan' without the 'V'" - which is how we pronounce it. Means 'God is Gracious' which is wonderful meaning. Our son loves his name, and have received only positive comments from all about his unique name ! -- and the heritage behind the name too.

I named my son Ean in 2021. His fathe's name'started with an "e" and we wanted his name to begin with "e" without naming him after his father. Ean was perfect because it means John and that is my father's name.

This is My name, but I am a girl, NOT a boy!! I have been called by it for 22 years now. I love my name, there aren't too many of us out there, but there are some, within the past year I have met 3 Jaren's some spelled differently, but all pronounced the' Karen but with a "J" and surprisingly all were girls! I actually have met a few boy Jaren's in my time, but I still think that it is pretty as a girls name than a boys name! I would not wish to have any other name...though it is a slight hassle in classes when a teacher calls my name; the look of shock in my professors faces when'they first have me in class is priceless because they expect a boy to answer their call and instead they get my voice!!

11/18/2021 14:26:06

My Name. Born in'the 80s and there is a specific letter that only exists to people named "Ean." It is an "I" with a small line added in'the middle of the letter to the right to form a makeshift "E." Every nametag I have ever had was started with an "I" and then'they all stop after the first letter and ask how it is spelled. Upon learning that it is spelled with an "E", they all do the'same exact thing. Make the "I" into an "E" and give me the nametag. Happened so many times to me and other Eans that It's hilarious.

09/22/2021 19:05:06

My oldest had a name that'started with "E" so I wanted her'sibling to have an "E" name too. During my pregnancy I told everyone his name was going to be Evan and then I saw Ean on closed captioning while watching a pregnancy show on'tLC ;) I decided he would be Ean in'tead of Evan. He loves his unique name that we gave him in 2016!
