Ffion is not the Welsh version of Fiona it is the Welsh word for Foxglove and is therefore unique.

It's pronounced EFf-ee-on. Effion. Therefore Ffion. William Hague's (ex-Tory leader, UK) wife bears this name and he pronounced it 'EFfion'.

One of my good friends is called Ffion (from foxglove) and it's pronounced Fi-on. I like the name. It's unusual but my friend hates it when people only spell it with 1 F.

I'm called Ffion and apparently it's the Welsh version of Foxglove! One thing I can't understand is why English people can pronounce Fiona but not Ffion!

I like this name a lot, it just has something that makes me love it, I don't know why though.

I've only heard this pronounced as fee-ON.

Ffion is NOT a Welsh version of Fiona. Many people 'presume' this but they couldn't be more wrong. In fact, it is FOXGLOVE in Welsh. It's pronounced fee-on and is surprisingly easy to say. The two F's tend to confuse people. In the Welsh alphabet 1 F makes a 'V' sound whereas the 'FF' makes a 'F' sound. Simple! [noted -ed]

Pronounced Phee-on (the "ph" is how you pronounce "ff" in Welsh).

Will teachers ever enjoy trying to pronounce Ffion.

This might sound a bit nitpicky, but my baby name book says that as a name, it is actually from the COLOR of a fox-glove. In medieval poetry, the word is used to describe the color of a beautiful girl's cheeks. So by extension, it is describing the owner as being as pretty as someone in an old poem, with cheeks as rosy as fox-gloves.

Hi, my names Ffion and my name's pronounced Fee-on, not f-fee-on, but it's funny when people do, and it's also not pronounced ef-ee-on. Hoped I helped people.

The 2 Fs sound just like 1 F. It's simply pronounced FEE-on (on as in the word on). It's simple to pronounce. It's not ef-fee-on like someone else said.

I'm Welsh and know loads of Ffions (it's a very popular name here) so trust me, I'm correct.
