Comments for SIWAN:

Pronounced "SHOO-awn". I think this name is beautiful! Joan isn't a very pretty name for me and Siwan and the Gaelic "Siobhán" really beautify this rather dull name.

I would just like to say that I don't know where you get the idea that it's said "SHOO-awn" from. It's "See-wan".

I like this name. I have a fascination with Welsh names at the moment. Since my name is Joan and this is the Welsh form of it, I would consider using this name!

It's actually pronounced Seew-Anne, or that's how my history teachers pronounce it. Llywelyn The Great had a daughter or a sister or a wife called this.

Here is a link to how it's pronounced:

It sounds like seew-ann or see-oo-ann.

The way it's spelled is nice, but the way it's pronounced is RETARDED. This is a really dumb name, I'd actually prefer Joan to this.

Retarded? Oh, thanks very much. I'm sure that's not in the slightest bit offensive to speakers of the Welsh language. It probably made their day.

It's pronounced 'shoo-ann', this is my name!
I am quite offended by these comments.
This is no place to call names 'Retarded'! But at least I don't have a boring name like... I don't know... 'Mary'?
