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.

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'?

It is a very beautiful name. However the correct way to pronounce it is Shee-oohanne. It is my sister's name and many people pronounce it wrong as See-oohanne. The traditional and correct way of saying it is with a Sh.

Both pronunciations are correct. First-language Welsh speakers pronounce it either 'shew-awn' or 'siew-awn'.

'Si' is pronounced 'shhh' before a vowel and 'si' before a consonant but the letter 'w' functions as a vowel or a consonant depending on the situation. First-language Welsh speakers will use either pronunciation depending on their dialect.
