Comments for SØREN:

The "Sör" part is pronounced a little like "sir", rhymes with Fleur. Sören = SIR-enn.

Actually my nephew's name is Soren and it is pronounced like it looks not "sir-en".

Ylva left a comment about the pronunciation of Sören, which was correct. Obviously if you anglicize the name and drop the umlaut it will be pronounced differently, more like in sorry.

I have a friend named Soren, without the umlaut. I'm from Belgium, and here the name is pronounced like Sooren, in Dutch pronunciation. It's not like the English one.

I LOVE this name! And that is why I chose to name my first born son Soren. It's a very masculine name and my son is very handsome and intelligent, I think it suits him. :) As for pronunciation, we say SOR-en. Just like it looks.

In Norwegian:
Sør - sir
En -in

The -en sound is very short.

Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was a Danish philosopher, existentialist and author of many books although he used pseudonyms at the time. His best know book is arguably "Either/Or."

I think of Lola's imaginary friend Soren Lorenson in the Charlie and Lola books by Lauren Child. I like the name Soren. I pronounce it how it looks, but I suppose that's because English is my first language. Soren sort of makes me think of 'sorrow' but I like the name anyway.

I like how it looks and sounds; it doesn't matter to me if it's pronounced Soren or Siren, I like it anyway. I would consider using it despite my location (USA) where it's not common.

Ugh, a modern name. It doesn't even sound cool... It sounds like soarin'. Which does not sound like a name in any way.

There was a little kid at my brother's school named Soren and my dad couldn't stop laughing because it reminded him of Sauron from the Lord of the Rings.
