Though this is an odd name, I still like it, I assume it's pronounced JAY-han.

It should be added that this name is feminine as well (I mentioned an example of a female bearer of this name, Jahan Yousaf).

And I think the description of this name on BtN should definitely mention Shah Jahan, the Muslim Mughal emperor of India who famously got the Taj Mahal (one of the Seven Wonders of the World) built for his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj Mahal containing both his body placed in a tomb next to the tomb of Mumtaz Mahal. I mean, after all, other names on BtN have famous bearers mentioned in the description of the name part.

Also I would have to correct the user missBridget as Jahan is pronounced "jə-HAN".

I personally find this name very beautiful and lovely. :) I suppose some people who are not familiar with this name may find the name "odd" but really at the end of the day a̲l̲l̲ names seem odd to people from other cultures who are not familiar with the name. I can't but help but love and appreciate the beauty of many names from cultures that I have no cultural and racial heritage of, like, Irish and Russian names, for example. ^_^
