Thoughts on Aeryn?

    I posted here a little while ago, but have decided to go in a different direction, but still sticking the letter A (my other post was about Adalyn VS Addison).

    What do you think of the name Aeryn/Aerin (said like AIR-in, as opposed to EH-rin). I’ve done some research, and from what I’ve gathered, Americans seem to have a problem pronouncing it, but we’re not American I don’t think the pronunciation/spelling would be a problem. :)

    I also like Aderyn and Anwyn. I like strong A and E sounds. What do you think of Aeryn?
    :)

    I just think it looks…..strange. Much prefer Erin.

    The spelling looks made up to me. I would assume it was pronounced like Erin (I pronounce both Aaron and Erin the same, AIR-in, not eh-rin).
    I haven’t heard Anwyn or Aderyn before. What is the origin and meaning? You mentioned you’re not in the US; are those names that people have heard before where you live? My first impression here is that they might be made-up/playing off some of the current name trends.

    I prefer Erin to that spelling. Have you considered Arwen/Arwyn?

    It does look a little made up. I think the more I look at it, the less I like it. I also just found out it’s a character from a television show, and I don’t want people to associate it with that. :(

    Anwyn/Anwen and Aderyn and are both Welsh names. Aderyn (said like a-DEH-rin or a-DAIR-in) means ‘bird’ and Anwen means ‘very beautiful’. I like the nickname options with Aderyn – Addy, Rin, Erin, etc.

    I like Arwen, but don’t want to use it because of the Lord of the Rings character.

    In America at least, we pronounce Erin as AIR-in, so we might assume that the Ae- in Aeryn is way different and say it like AY-rin, because it’s too weird to be just Erin.
    The Aeryn spelling just seems made-up and like it’s trying to be different. I have met people who spell it as just Aryn, though, which I think could be a good alternative if you really want the A. The Ae just looks so made-up and childish to me…

    one of the biggest thing i think people over look when naming a child is what a pain in the BUTT it is to have to tell people how to spell and pronounce your name all the time.

    I dont think you’d have pronouciation issues with Aderyn/Anwyn/Anwen but you will definately have to spell it. hubby’s last name has to be spelled every time and my SD has a 1st name that she has to spell for people, at least 3 times a week she says and her name is still never spelled right. it doesnt sound like a big deal until your insurance is threatening not to cover something b/c the name on the card is spelled on way and the name on the admit form is spelled another.
