  • "My name is Vaughn. Overall I think its a very strong, unique, and cool name. Not so unusual that it is jarring, but uncommon enough that people notice it. When you first met someone a conversation about your name is a high probability. One cool thing is that people are very, very likely to remember you. Even if you only met briefly a long time ago. Also the way you pronounce it will depend on if your accent has the caught-cot merger or not. I pronounce those words the same, so I think it is pronounced like 'von', as in the german title."
