Origin Persian, is used as well in the Turkic regions of former Soviet Union. It can very well be given to a girl as well. Pronounced: djan.

This name would be TOTALLY EMBARASSING to have!

I wouldn't use this name; it's spelled the same as the English word "can".

Why would you name your kid Can? I just can't get past the English meanings.

I know it's Turkish, but this is a really ugly name! Just think of all the cruel jokes that Can come out of other kids' mouths, say, "kick the Can". I pity whoever has this name.

Can, can, can you do the can-can, can you do the can-can, can you do the can-can?

Not a very good name to have in an English-speaking country, is it? I do like the meaning, though.

I believe they don't speak English in Turkey, but Turkish. So whatever Can may mean in English shouldn't be a big problem, don't you think?

It is pronounced 'JAN/JUN' as in Turkey they pronounce their C's as J's. I've met people with this name so I know this is how is pronounced. The solution if you had this name and were in an English school you could change the 'c' to a 'j' so there'll be no confusion.

"Can you help me, Can?"
"Can you see it Can?"
"Can you go, Can?"

Lol! Can is such a common, everyday of every second English word.

All I can think of is trashcan and the word can. Imagine how awkward this would be on a child.
