It's pronounced "REER-den."

I like this name a lot!

I sincerely hope this name isn't pronounced "REER-dan". I don't know why, but I find it slightly unattractive said this way; I much prefer "ROAR-dan".

I agree. I keep looking for a name pronounced "ROAR-dan" instead of "REER-dan" but no such luck. I usually loathe made up names, but I'm driven to the point of desperation here. Rordan look okay?

Pronounced Reer-din and it is a surname.

I like Riordan. It has a strong sound and a fantastic meaning. It's in my top ten.

Not sure whether to pronounce it 'REE-or-dan' or 'RI-or-dan.'

It is most commonly pronounced Reardon but we pronounce it Rye-er-din. The plus is never having to write my son's last name on anything. :) He's 15 now and has always loved his name.
