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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

My Name is ShaWn, No one ever gets the'spelling right, but that's cool, as long as the get my surname right!

11/02/2021 06:48:54

People never'spell my name right. They say, "Is It's-H-A-W-N or S-E-A-N?" SHAWN...maybe!! but SEAN?? what does that'spell? SEEN?

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.
