"My name is Sh?n, note the circumflex. It is pronounced the same as Shaun, Sean and the Welsh Si?n from which it is derived.
It is often pronounced and always spelled incorrectly and no one ever bothers with the circumflex.
In Welsh, Shon without a circumflex would be pronounced shone (as in a light) but would have no meaning.
Most of my post comes to Shaun, Sean or Sion despite my spelling it out to the various senders over the phone.
I sometimes wonder if my name has affected my job prospects outside Wales. I hope I'm just being paranoid." Feb. 4, 2011:
