  • "My oldest had a name that started with "E" so I wanted her sibling to have an "E" name too. During my pregnancy I told everyone his name was going to be Evan and then I saw Ean on closed captioning while watching a pregnancy show on TLC ;) I decided he would be Ean instead of Evan. He loves his unique name that we gave him in 2004!" Oct. 9, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Name. Born in the 80s and there is a specific letter that only exists to people named "Ean." It is an "I" with a small line added in the middle of the letter to the right to form a makeshift "E." Every nametag I have ever had was started with an "I" and then they all stop after the first letter and ask how it is spelled. Upon learning that it is spelled with an "E", they all do the same exact thing. Make the "I" into an "E" and give me the nametag. Happened so many times to me and other Eans that it's hilarious."

Am told the original correct pronunciations is like 'Eon' - or as another said 'Ivan' without the 'V'" - which is how we pronounce it. Means 'God is Gracious' which is wonderful meaning. Our son loves his name, and have received only positive comments from all about his unique name ! -- and the heritage behind the name too." Mar. 20, 2015: Report as inappropriate
