  • "Hans Means SWAN - the bird - in Hindi and I like the pronunciation of Hans (rhyming to Fans)as opposed to the German pronunciation Hahns or HAOUNS - to much stress on the syllables for such a short lettered name Hans the swan is pronounced - Hunss with lot of stress on 's'.... Variant and comman name in India is Hansraj - Swan King I love the name - It means 'God is Gracious' - but since I've grown into a NON believer - I like SWAN. Swans are handsome and most beautiful birds so there you have it - Swan - handsome -hans" Feb. 13, 2009: Report as inappropriate

Especially, but not exclusively, in rural areas there are many called Johann, and they are all nicknamed Hans. Johann is pronounced 'Yo-hun' and Hans 'Huns' - think of it as a plural of 'hun' and you know how to say it." Mar. 9, 2007: Report as inappropriate
