  • "Jan and Jon are very similar in pronunciation! It is the dutch form of John, Jean, Juan, Johann. It can also be short for the very popular dutch names: Johannes, Han, Hannes, Johan, Joop" Oct. 1, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "Jan (pronounced "yaan") is the name of my boyfriend. He's from Germany and is a real 6'2", blonde-haired, blue-eyed hottie. At first I wasn't sure about his name because I thought, "Who wants to be names YAWN?" Lol. But the longer I've gotten to know the super strong, hard-working, no-nonsense man that he is, I also see his name as a strong name and I love it. (I might be biased, of course haha.)"

  • "If you pronounce it foreign-y like ("yawn") then YES! I know someone like this and he is g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s. It's a nice name." Nov. 17, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "it seems like people do have trouble saying it. more of the older generation pronounce it as "yaahn" but some say it like "jahn" i prefer jan that rhymes with can, man, fan etc. when i tell other people i really have to exaggerate on the j. others say its a girls name which sometimes i get offended. i like my name."

  • "mine is Jan-Paul which is a dutch name.. didnęt used to like it as a child as was called Jan and told that was a girlęs name even though its meant to be pronounced "Yahn Paal" As most people cannot pronounce it or presumed I was French (Jean-Paul) ended being called J-P which was cool but now like to be called by my real name again" Feb. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate
