Sion is pronounced 'SHORN', the same as the Irish Sean.

I have only encountered this name once, in historical records from the 1810s. I had no clue how to pronounce it or where it came from. I think it's kind of strange. Certainly not mainstream (at least not in the USA).

Met someone called this, and they pronounced it 'Sean'. I called him Sion though as I had no idea, and of course he laughed. It's such an unusual name these days!

I really like this name! And to clarify on pronunciation, it is pronounced "Shown", as in the phrase "the film was shown on TV". So, not "Sean", not "Shorn", not "See-on", but "Shown" (with a long "o").

The person above is incorrect. It's not pronounced "shown" It's pronounced just like Sean, Shaun, Shawn etc.
I can guarantee I'm correct, I'm Welsh and I have a cousin called Sion, and I know countless Sions and they all pronounce it just like Sean.

The Welsh name for Santa Claus is "Sion Corn".
Corn here is pronounced like the word "con" but add the r. (If that makes sense)?
