My brothe's name is Shaun. EVERYONE spells it wrong. But, I love it because it is different. All the'sHAUN's ive meet are really awesome people!

i've never been partial to the name'shawn either way it is spelled. However I think it is more fitting a spelling for a boy to be spelled Shawn or Sean as those forms seem far more masculine to me. The'shaun version always makes me think of Shauna or Shaunie (Shaq's former wife). And typically I always felt if there is one or more vowels in a unisex name to soften it up. Then naturally that makes it the more feminine version of the name. Such as Alexa for Alex. Toni for Tony and so on and so forth.

well my nieces name is grace..i dont know what i think about it. i used to like it but now i kinda think its just so plain...its just like...grace. and of course it has a beautiful meaning and she's a beautiful girl...its a boring name...

My name is Shaun also, so far I have not run into anyone else with this name. It is awesome! Even if people mispell it, I love it.

10/19/2023 20:29:58

I named my little boy Shaun. he's awesome and so is the'spelling of his name. It's a little different, but the'sean...just couldn't do it! SEEN!

10/15/2023 03:38:46

I agree with the last commentator. A bit like spelling "education" "edukayshun", really. However, of all the perverse renderings of the irish name'seın I think "Shorn" is better than "Shaun" or "Shawn".

09/28/2023 09:18:44

shaun is the best name ever, if u spell It'sean, i feel bad for you.

08/25/2023 07:25:10

Yeah, people call me Wayne at first too. It usually takes me about one minute to get them saying Wade and not Wayne...

06/07/2023 05:11:28

I'm due in 40 days...I am naming my baby boy Shaun. I went back in forth between Shawn and Shaun and now after reading this website I'm sticking to my first choice, Shaun. thanks everyone!

06/01/2023 21:38:36

05/23/2023 04:00:06

05/11/2023 06:55:46

My brothe's name is Shaun and again it is often misspelled. But the the variant "Sean" is pronounced as Shawn because of its Irish/Gaelic origin

04/24/2023 14:56:48

my son's name is Shaun, and he is the most intelligent boy !

03/29/2023 07:58:02

I am a Trans man and I picked the name'shaun Because of its meaning. I like this particular spelling of it because it feels warm and is phonetically spelled.

03/07/2023 21:04:26

My current boyfriends name is shaun. I'must say i fell inlove with his name before his i have 3 other guy pals named either'shaun, or sean. weird how it has different spelling. very popular name in s.a. just like roxanne. yup thats me

02/11/2023 04:35:38

In kindergarden my teacher corrected me and said I was spelling my name wrong. My mother corrected her and told her I knew how to spell my name. Since then I have been very attached to the'sHAUN spelling and kindly correct anyone who gets it wrong. That use to happen all the time when I was younger, but people are more aware of the different spellings now and usually ask me how I spell it.

01/10/2023 03:11:34

I reckon that the only reason Shaun has been used as an alternative to Sean is that they could not spell It'sean correctly.

11/05/2022 04:36:04

my boyfriends name is shaun everyone thinks its spelt the other ways the name'suits him so well i couldnt think of any other name for him.

11/01/2022 23:00:52

Great name. Shame it cannot be directly translated into many other languages. Im guessing you would have to use the root of John. Also people so spell the name wrong depending on where you are. It's also my name. I love the name Anthony and Josh for some reason

09/24/2022 05:09:00

Shaun is completely incorrect, as is Shawn. The only legitimate spelling is Sean (or Se❤️n, if you are actually Irish).

08/29/2022 22:30:18

My husband's name is Shaun. People say it and spell it wrong all the time. I hate it when I hear other women calls him Shawn. They say it with the 'W' which is not spell with the 'W'. i agree with the guy above. Sean is said to be Seen.

06/14/2022 21:59:42

I want to murder everyone that'spells my name'sean. its like, hey have you seen sean❤️ its like a double negative. its retarted. SHAUN

06/01/2022 17:24:18

11/02/2021 06:48:54

10/12/2021 15:48:00

my brothe's name is shaun and people mis spell it often, but i love the name, and i like how it is so different from other'spellings, becuase i dont know not one other person who spells their names like that. its really unique. great name.

08/18/2021 20:01:48

Thats how I spell it. It is better looking beause the u and n are just upside down versions of each other. :)

08/11/2021 09:36:18

This is my name....pronounced kaylee. It used to bother me that everyone pronounced it Callie but i would just correct them and tell them that my parents couldn't spell. I love my name and the way it is spelled. It's short and sweet and unique. All other Kalis that I know spell it kaylee and I'm glad to have it the'shorter way. My only regret is that i was also given a 'different' middle name; Roenne. I have come to love both.
