I find Lien to be a very pretty name even in English-speaking areas.

'^N' for nasal.

'Lien' is sometimes used in place of Liên in English. Lián is the Mandarin for 'lotus' as well and is pronounced 'LEE-AYN' (similar to the Vietnamese pronunciation, but N is not nasal). Both names are pronounced very similar to the English 'Leeann', but it is sometimes pronounced in English as 'Lynn' (Liên/Lien is my middle name and that's how it has been 'Americanised').
